At the start of a new life, a little help can go far

For refugees arriving in a new country to begin a new life, the experience can be overwhelming. IOM helps by preparing the individuals with cultural information and helpful tips about the society. Migrant trainer Dima Salih recounts her experience from a training she organised for Iceland-bound refugees in Lebanon.


Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR)

IOM is mandated by its Constitution to ensure orderly migration and among other IOM programmes, Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) is an important part of migration management. AVRR aims for humane return and reintegration of migrants who are unable or unwilling to remain in their host countries and who wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin.
