IOM’s VOLUNTARY RETURN PROGRAM IN GREECE HAS TEMPORARILY STOPPED


Asylum seekers, migrants or refugees who wish to voluntarily return to their country of origin, can do so under the Voluntary Return Program of IOM. However, IOM has confirmed to the Mobile Info Team that the current Voluntary Return Program in Greece has temporarily stopped. This is due to the fact that the program had an implementation period of only three years, and now it needs to be renewed. If you applied for Voluntary Return before the program stopped, your application will most likely still be processed. IOM confirmed that the Voluntary Return Program will continue in the near future. When exactly they will begin again is still unclear, but it could be sometime in September or October. If, in the meantime, you would like to apply for Voluntary Return, you can still go to one of the IOM offices and show them your paperwork. They will get in touch with you, as soon as the program resumes. For more information about Voluntary Return, please click here: https://www.mobileinfoteam.org/voluntary-return
