AID MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR NEPAL
After languishing in refugee camps in eastern Nepal for 18 years, 108,000 registered Bhutanese refugees became eligible for third country resettlement in late 2007 due to the concerted efforts of a Core Group of resettlement countries, UNHCR and the Government of Nepal. IOM assists in the resettlement of Bhutanese refugees from Nepal to the United States (and other countries) by 1) interviewing refugees and completing US Government forms; 2) conducting health assessments; 3) providing cultural orientation courses and 4) organizing transportation for refugees from the camps in eastern Nepal to their final destination in the United States.
1) IOM interviews and completes US Government forms for 17,000 Bhutanese refugees per year and schedule them for interviews with US immigration offers.
2) IOM conducts health assessments for 17,000 refugees per year and, when required, organize further investigations and treatment. Further, IOM provides pre-embarkation health checks on the day prior to the resettlement flight.
3) IOM provides Cultural Orientation courses for 10,000 refugees aged 14 and above annually who are selected for resettlement to the United States.
4) IOM organizes charter flights from eastern Nepal to Kathmandu and commercial flights from Kathmandu to the final destination in the United States for 15,000 Bhutanese refugees annually.
