Returning voluntarily is a possibility for migrants who are considering going back to their country of origin. In individual counselling sessions you can talk about the possibilities of voluntary return, allowing you to make an informed decision. Return counselling does not oblige you to leave Germany. It does not affect your asylum procedure.
Various support programs can assist you with the organization of the journey, cover your travel costs, or provide financial start-up assistance in your homeland.
There are different support programs that help you to organize your return and also assist financially and technically with your new start in your homeland.
The Office for Migration and Integration (Amt für Migration und Integration of the Landratsamt Konstanz) provides a service center where you can receive personal and up-to-date advice independent of the outcome of the consultation.
