International Organisation for Migration United Kingdom (IOM UK)

IOM is the world's leading independent migration agency. IOM was established in 1951 while its UK main office in London started operation in 1999. IOM UK also has branch offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds and Liverpool. IOM UK runs two voluntary return programmes - one for anyone who has been in the asylum system at any stage - applying, appealing, refused - (VARRP) and the other for irregular migrants - who have overstayed their visas or have been smuggled or trafficked into the country (AVRIM). Under both programmes IOM arranges flights and onward transportation to the home doorstep but under the scheme for asylum seekers IOM also delivers Reintegration Assistance in the country of return.
