On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH operates so-called "Centers for Migration and Development" in various countries, which accompany returnees during their reintegration.
The centers advise and support you if you have returned from Germany, Europe or other countries to one of the following countries and need assistance with your local social and economic reintegration: Albania, Egypt, Gambia, Ghana, Iraq, Kosovo, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Senegal, Serbia and Tunisia.
Counseling is free, confidential and non-binding. The centers provide advice, for example, on how to find a job or start your own business after returning home. In addition to general counseling, the centers also refer returnees to further education, training, or offers of psychosocial support.
