On this page you can find voluntary return and reintegration programmes that are available for Pakistan as well as further information about the country.
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.
From 01 October, 2021 there is a corona vaccination obligation for people entering Pakistan. According to this, only vaccinated returnees to Pakistan can initially be funded through the REAG/GARP programme. It should be noted that in future applications for the destination country Pakistan, appropriate vaccination certificates of the returning person/s must be available and submitted to the IOM in order to be able to consider the applications.
Please note that due to the current political challenges in Pakistan, voluntary returns through IOM´s return assistance programmes REAG/GARP and StarthilfePlus are possible but might be subject to certain restrictions and/or delays. The IOM continuously observes and assesses the situation on site.
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.
