Migration Legislation in the Americas

Milex is a database component of the OAS migration information systems. The platform provides an updated collection of specialized international and national standards on the subject in order to serve as a practical tool to assist politicians, legislators and their advisors in the formulation of laws, policies and other instruments on international migration. Likewise, it is an invaluable tool that supports lawyers, jurists, activists, researchers, academics and students interested in the documents.

The database provides immediate and up-to-date access to official documents, including; international laws, codes, specific legislation on human rights, asylum and refuge, entry, stay and permanence regimes, regulation on communities abroad, crimes related to migration, among others.
