Please enter your city, area code, or exact address in the search to find counselling centres in your area. The BAMF and the IOM would like to point out that return counselling and follow-up counselling in governmental and independent institutions are always free of charge. Please make appointments for counselling on voluntary return and reintegration only in official offices that are listed on this website. Should costs be raised, we ask you to report these facilities to us at ReturningfromGermany@iom.int
There are independent counselling centers, such as welfare organizations, NGOs, or other organizations, as well as governmental counselling centres, for example in social welfare offices or aliens' offices. Return counselling is individual, non-binding and unbiased. It does not oblige you to leave Germany.
