Bulgaria has been a member of IOM since 1994. In 2000, a Cooperation Agreement between Bulgaria and IOM officially entered into force. Ratified by the National Assembly and followed by a Decree of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria, it provides the IOM Mission in Bulgaria the same privileges and immunities as those of UN Specialized Agencies under the Convention on the Privileges and Immunities of the Specialized Agencies of 1947.

IOM Bulgaria seeks to assist the government in the development and implementation of migration policies that respond effectively to modern migration realities and challenges, aiming at the optimal balance between observing the principles of free movement of people, controlling irregular migration and protecting the human rights of migrants.
