Armenian women and children are trafficked for sexual purposes within the country’s borders as well as in United Arab Emirates and Turkey; they are also vulnerable to be forced to beg domestically. Within the country, children are vulnerable to labor trafficking including agriculture, construction and service provision.

In 2013, Armenia raised the legal age of marriage for both boys and girls from 17 to 18 years. Despite this, in 2016 7% of women between the ages 20-24 had been married before their 18th birthday.

Between 2010 and 2014, the Office of the Prosecutor General cites nine convictions for the trafficking of children for the purpose of prostitution in Armenia. Additional statistics register 61 cases of sexual crimes against girls and 3 against boys in 2014.
