Monitoring Report Assisted Voluntary Returns Programs March – September 2020

This monitoring report summarizes 116 surveys that IOM conducted from March 2020 to September 2020 to capture the experiences of participants in the IOM Assisted Voluntary Return (AVR) programs in El Salvador, Guatemala/Belize, and Honduras. The primary purpose of these surveys is to gain a deeper understanding of how beneficiaries reintegrate upon return to their origin countries by asking each migrant 24 to 32 questions that encompass feedback on IOM’s assistance during returns, migrants' experiences during travel and transit, on reception as well as post-arrival assistance, and life upon return.
