Voluntary Return

IOM supports migrants who voluntarily wish to return to their country of origin or migrate to a third country where permanent residence is guaranteed.

Due to measures following the COVID-19 outbreak, we have adapted our activities on Assisted Voluntary Return. Flight availability is limited, and countries of origin and transit points may have additional restrictions in place.
Within these limitations, our staff will continue to assist migrants who wish to return to the best of their abilities.
All counsellors remain reachable by contacting them directly or by calling 088 746 4466.
The feasibility of return will be assessed case by case.

Migration and Development

Do you belong to a diaspora community?
Find out how we enable you, as a member of the diaspora, to give back to your country of origin. We offer opportunities that allow you to apply your knowledge and expertise for the development of your country of origin.

Here you will find information on Connecting Diaspora for Development, phase 2 (CD4D2).

Family Reunification

IOM supports migrants who wish to reunite with their family members. To see if we can assist you, please find more information below or contact us directly.

Due to measures following the COVID-19 outbreak, IOM has adapted its activities on Family Reunification. Limited flight availability and additional (local) travel restrictions may apply. Within these limitations, IOM staff will continue to assist migrants who wish to reunite with their family members to the best of our abilities.


Migrant Inclusion, Social Cohesion and Labour Mobility

We implement projects that help migrants find their place in Dutch society. We also assist our partners (government, employers etc.) to recognize and welcome the positive contributions that migrants make to our society. Promoting migrant inclusion and social cohesion is at the core of our work.

We promote labour migration by matching talent from outside of Europe with Dutch employers. Labour mobility is an international phenomenon, with labour migrants making up nearly two-thirds of the global number of migrants. When well-managed, labour mobility is highly beneficial to migrants, their countries of origin and the European economies.

Millions of people have been forced to flee their homes in search of safety.

The situation is evolving by the hour and the needs of vulnerable and displaced persons are increasing drastically.

But we can’t do this alone – help us help more.
