National budget and AMIF

The voluntary return programme depends partly on national budget and partly on European budget from the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF). This Fund aims at reinforcing the European management of migration and at promoting a common approach based on solidarity among the Member States.

The AMIF project Voluntary Return 2024-2025

  1. Improve the outreach, the accompaniment and the support of the target group in the field. This target group consists of applicants for international protection and undocumented migrants.
  2. Reinforce reintegration assistance with a special focus on vulnerabilities: for example, unaccompanied foreign minors, families with children or returnees with underlying medical problems.
  3. Build partnerships with organisations active in the field of Voluntary Return or the accompaniment of the target group in order to develop and strengthen the national and international cooperation.
  4. Aim for a better quality return programme by focusing on the monitoring and evaluation of the current management processes and the support offer. In this regard, the digitalisation and datalisation of the return process play a key role.
