Abstract: 
We examine the labor market performance of return migrants using the Hungarian Household Panel Survey. Two distinct selection issues are considered in the estimation of the earnings equation; we implement a natural method using MLE. The result that there is a 'premium' to work experience abroad for women is robust across the models we considered. For men, the return to working abroad is not generally significant.
