The BAMF informs: Update of the country pages Syria, Yemen, Libya and Eritrea

12 May 2021

Due to the persistently difficult security situation in Syria, Yemen and Libya, voluntary return to these countries is currently not supported by the IOM programmes REAG/GARP and StarthilfePlus. The situation there is continuously monitored and checked by the IOM.

People who nevertheless want to return to Syria, Yemen or Libya should contact the nearest counselling centre, which can, if necessary, provide information about other existing support options from the respective federal states.

A voluntary return to Eritrea must be checked on a case-by-case basis. Therefore, it may take longer to process.

Further information on this topic is available on the website of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) available.
