CARDET in collaboration with the University of Nicosia and Caritas International are implementing the Action “ Establishment of Migrant Information Centre for Assisted Voluntary Returns – AVR Cyprus ” co-funded by the European Return Fund and the Cyprus Government. The aim of this Action is to provide information, psychosocial support and financial assistance for Third Country Nationals who wish to return to their country of origin.

The services provided are offered to Third country nationals, asylum seekers, refugees and irregular migrants from third countries who wish to return to their country of origin. The beneficiary has the choice to step out of the program at any given point.

The AVR programme promotes voluntary returns in a humane and dignity way to those who can no longer stay legally or/and financially in Cyprus.  As a centre, we are a liaison office between the target group and the government services and departments, in order to inform, help and support those who are thinking to return to their countries of origin. Services are provided free of charge by trained personnel.
