Reintegration assistance

In-kind support

Depending on the situation, assistance of between EUR 2,000 and EUR 5,300 may be awarded for voluntary return. The assistance is always provided as in-kind support.

In-kind support

In-kind support is support that is not paid in cash. In-kind support for starting your own business, finding a place to live, studying and use healthcare services.

Consider your opportunities in your home country. The following things are worth considering:

  • What kind of situation will you be returning to?
  • What did you do in your home country before you left?
  • What will you need after returning home?
  • How can you make the best possible use of the support you get?

We will advise you on how to use the support and the practical arrangements related to the support. In-kind support will be arranged through a reliable service provider in your home country, with whom you will be cooperating.

In-kind support is always provided in your home country through a reliable, verified operator. For example, the authorities in your home country are not involved in providing the in-kind support for you.

Tips for using in-kind support

In-kind support is a flexible form of support. It will be decided on for each applicant individually. Watch the videos with Hasan, Fadumo and Farah talking about their experiences after returning home.

The provider of in-kind support varies, depending on your home country. The only service providers used by the Finnish Immigration Service are the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the European Technology and Training Center (ETTC) or Caritas Internationalis. For more tips and ideas on how to use in-kind support, see more returnee experiences on the websites of ETTC and Caritas.
