Voluntary Return Assistance to Migrants in Tanzania

The project started in April 2014, it is funded by Japan and aims at decreasing the number of stranded and destitute migrants in the region, increasing capacity of the government to document and manage return migration, thus promoting a more peaceful and stable environment in the affected communities.

The project’s main components are:

  1. Direct assistance to the most vulnerable stranded migrants in Tanzania to return to their country of origin through AVR
  2. Capacity Building of immigration officials and border police to improve their skills in migration and return management
  3. Promotion of regional dialogue through a cross-border workshop on migration management, as follow-up of the 2010 Regional IOM-UNHCR Conference on Refugees Protection and International Migration
