The COVID-19 pandemic poses significant challenges to governments, societies, businesses and individuals. As the outbreak worsens, migrant workers as a vulnerable group in international supply chains face increased health risks due to lack of health insurance or access to health care, job insecurity due to factory shut-downs and lay-offs, and risk of losing their regular status by overstaying visas due to tightening travel restrictions.

The Overview of Government Responses to Ensure Safety and Wellbeing of Migrant Workers Affected by the COVID-19 Outbreak has been carried out by IOM project officers under the Corporate Responsibility in Eliminating Slavery and Trafficking (CREST) initiative through a desk research of official government websites and websites, recommended by government authorities. The monitoring is updated on a weekly basis. The date of the latest revision is indicated on the first page of this document, as well as in each country section.
