Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) is a key tool in regulating migration and aims at the orderly, humane, and cost effective return of migrants, who wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin.

IOM Tallinn started implementing an AVRR programme in Estonia in 2010. Return and reintegration services are offered to migrants, who wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin. Assisted migrants include asylum seekers and irregular migrants. Voluntary Assisted Return and Reintegration in Estonia (VARRE) aims to support the Government of Estonia in enhancing a systematic approach to return management and in strengthening and implementing a voluntary return and reintegration framework in Estonia. Services provided to migrants returning voluntarily from Estonia include information provision and counseling, pre-departure assistance, assistance in obtaining travel documents, travel arrangements, and assistance at departure, transit and arrival.
