The Handbook for Armenians Abroad was published in 2010 by the Armenian Ministry of Diaspora with the support of the ILO-EU project ‘Towards Sustainable Partnerships for the Effective Governance of Labour Migration in the Russian Federation, the Caucasus and Central Asia’. The handbook seeks to foster stronger ties between Armenians abroad and their homeland, thus allowing for the exchange of skills and ideas. The tool outlines issues are related to admission to, stay in, and exit from the Republic of Armenia, as well as covers issues pertaining to the military service requirement for dual nationals. It also provides information on educational, cultural, labour, property and social rights, and responds to questions relating to employment and investing in Armenia. This initiative falls in the context of a broader initiative of the Ministry of Diaspora of the Republic of Armenia to develop and strengthen Armenia-Diaspora relations, preserve the Armenian identity, and develop projects encouraging the repatriation of Armenians.
