Voluntary Return from the Netherlands

If you are thinking of leaving the Netherlands to return to your home country, we may be able to help you. IOM’s voluntary return assistance is a free service offered to all migrants, regardless of their legal status in the Netherlands.

You can talk to us about voluntary return without any obligation. Everything we discuss, will be kept confidential. We will inform you on the assistance available before, during and after your departure. You can discuss any concerns you may have relating to your return in a personal conversation with one of our counsellors. To answer more specific questions, we can contact our colleagues at our office in your country of origin. If needed, we will refer you to other organizations providing social services or advice on various options. If you decide that voluntary return is the right choice for you, we can help you with all preparations for your departure.
