Welcome to the website of the Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR)​ programme of the IOM Country Office in Finland

Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) aims to better enable the orderly, humane and cost-effective return and reintegration of migrants who are unable or unwilling to remain in host countries and who wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin. 
IOM provides globally pre-departure, transportation and post-arrival assistance to unsuccessful asylum seekers, migrants in an irregular situation, migrants stranded in transit, stranded students and other persons under similar circumstances.

AVRR programmes have proven particularly effective in situations where the voluntary return option is part of a multipronged approach to migration management.

IOM Finland provides AVRR in Finland, Sweden and Iceland.
