Voluntary Return

Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration

What is Voluntary Return?

Voluntary return means that a person who has withdrawn an application for asylum or has received a negative asylum decision can return back to the home country or to another country where they have residence permit.

When a person returns voluntarily, financial assistance or in-kind support can be granted as a part of the assisted return and reintegration programme.

The purpose of this site is to raise awareness of voluntary return and its related services. The website is maintained by the Finnish Immigration Service.
