You are eligible to apply for IOM’s Hungarian Voluntary Return, Reintegration and Information Programme (HVRRIP) if:

  • You are a refugee, an asylum-seeker or a person authorized to stay in Hungary and you wish to voluntarily return to your country of origin
  • You are in an irregular situation in Hungary
  • You have no financial funds to go home
  • You have not applied for any other IOM programme to return back to your country of origin in the past
  • You have not committed any crimes in Hungary, i.e. you have not committed anything punishable under the Hungarian criminal code. Attempting to cross the border irregularly, overstaying or other alien policing offenses are not crimes under Hungarian legislation and, therefore, will not exclude you from being eligible to apply to the programme

Factors that do NOT limit your participation in the programme:

  • If you do not possess any identification documents
  • If you need an escort/medical escort
