The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of temporary migration on the upward occupational mobility by using a novel database from Estonia. 

The findings imply that the benefits of temporary migration from Eastern to Western Europe on the sending country via the returnees’ labour market performance might be limited, yet it does not exclude the benefits of return migration through other mechanism.
