Programme participants are asylum seekers who have received negative feedback on their claim and irregular migrants. 

IOM also helps stranded migrants, rejected asylum seekers and particularly vulnerable migrants residing in Georgia, who want to return permanently to their country of origin but do not have the means and/or travel documents to do so. For additional information, please see the following link:
