Bavaria

Here you'll find additional funding options ("funding modules") to assist you in case of voluntary return and reintegration. You can only receive these "funding modules" if you live in the Free State of Bavaria.

The Bavarian guideline for the funding of voluntary return to the country of origin, "Bavarian return programme", is a funding programme of the Free State of Bavaria. Here, the Bavarian State Office for Asylum and Repatriation (LfAR) has brought together the two previous Bavarian funding programmes run by the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior, for Sport and Integration, and the Bavarian State Ministry for Family, Labour and Social Affairs. This ensures the uniform funding in Bavaria of people who voluntarily return to their country of origin or wish to migrate further to a receiving third country.

The "Bavarian Return Programme" supplements existing funding programmes (in particular REAG/GARP, StarthilfePlus, ERRIN) and is oriented towards individual requirements. It offers various "funding modules", such as reintegration assistance, a start-up grant, medical support, a "special programme for Africa" ​​and much more.

Individual consultation on voluntary return and applications is provided in the Free State of Bavaria via the Central Immigration Authorities (ZAB) and the Central Return Counselling Centres (ZRB) as well as Coming Home. On this basis, you can make an informed decision. However, there is no legal entitlement to return and reintegration assistance in accordance with this guideline.
