Reintegration support – a chance for migrants to start a new life

Return migration is not only flying back home. A flight of a few hours might change the physical location of the returnee but adjusting mentally to being back takes much more time. Reintegration should not be counted in hours but in weeks and months. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to successful reintegration, comprehensive support helps restarting the life back home.


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.
