Assisted humanitarian voluntary return

You are a citizen of a country outside the European Union and European Economic Area, your right to stay in Romania has expired, you entered illegally or were an asylum seeker and do not have means to return to your country of origin?

Romanian authorities offer an alternative to forced removal from the Romanian territory. Thus, you can sign in the assisted voluntary repatriation program organized by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) – the Representative Office in Romania, in collaboration with the Romanian Government.

a) persons whose applications for refugee status were finally and irrevocably rejected by the Romanian competent authorities

c) other persons required to leave by the competent authorities in Romania as a result of an administrative decision or for which there are conditions of issue of such decisions.

 

You do not benefit from this program!

If you are a citizen of a non EU / EEA and against you the courts have ordered safety measures of expulsion, if you have been declared persona non grata in Romania or if you have previously benefited from this program, you can no longer sign up for assisted voluntary humanitarian repatriation.
