On this page you can find voluntary return and reintegration programmes that are available for Eritrea as well as further information about the country.
A voluntary return to Eritrea must be examined on a case-by-case basis. The processing can therefore take longer.
If you have any questions about voluntary return to Eritrea, please contact the nearest return counselling centre. If necessary, they can inform you about other existing support options through the individual federal states.
You can obtain further information on this topic from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF).
In the framework of ZIRF-Counselling you can ask specific questions regarding your country of origin through authorised counselling centres. The information will be researched by IOM on site and can help you make informed decisions and prepare your potential voluntary return.
You can receive assistance for your voluntary return with the following programmes:
REAG/GARP: Your travel costs will be covered and you can receive financial travel assistance and one-time financial start-up assistance.
