For Reintegration Assistance to Vulnerable returnees and returnees with chronic medical conditions

In line with Article 5 of the Decision No 575/2007/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 May 2007, IOM seeks to assist vulnerable returnees, such as minors, unaccompanied minors, disabled people, elderly people, pregnant women, single parents with minor children, and persons who have been subjected to torture, rape or other serious forms of psychological, physical or sexual violence and returnees with chronic medical conditions by providing reintegration assistance in the country of origin. The reintegration assistance component of this programme offers – based on a needs assessment – reintegration counselling and a reintegration grant of 700 EUR in-kind from which the beneficiary can finance the various activities of a pre-defined reintegration plan. This reintegration grant primarily comes in-kind, however under certain circumstances it may be partially granted in cash.

Vulnerable returnees and returnees with chronic medical conditions will be identified by the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing (NDGAP), the Police, the staff and the doctor of the relevant facility where the migrants are staying, the staff of other organizations working in these facilities, and by IOM staff during the outreach visits.

Each of the vulnerable cases will be discussed by all the project partners and other organizations present in the facilities.

In order to apply for reintegration assistance, the beneficiary should complete the Reintegration Assistance to Vulnerable Returnees Application Form. This document serves the purposes of a preliminary assessment of the returnee’s reintegration ideas and needs. Please click the link on the bottom of the webpage to complete the application form.

The decision to provide a reintegration grant to a beneficiary will be made by IOM Budapest after taking into consideration the information compiled in the vulnerability assessment, the feasibility of the reintegration plan, and the availability of designated project funds.

The selected beneficiaries – with the assistance of IOM Budapest and IOM office in the country of origin – will put together a reintegration plan, describing in detail the most important needs to be financed from the reintegration support. It is important the contact details provided are correct in the application form as IOM will get in touch with you once this application form has been evaluated.

The reintegration assistance to vulnerable returnees and returnees with chronic medical conditions will be provided with in-kind support, and under special circumstances the grant will be provided in cash. The necessary needs, services, and goods listed in the detailed reintegration plan will be funded directly by the IOM office in the country of origin.

The provision of reintegration assistance is independent from your return. Therefore, if your reintegration plan gets rejected, the rejection will not affect your return journey in any way.

Due to the limited availability of financial resources, the reintegration assistance can only be provided to a limited number of applicants.

The amount of reintegration grant is maximum 700 EUR.
