This means that an asylum seeker who has been refused asylum permanently and who wishes to travel voluntarily to his or her home country will, as a starting point, be covered by the target group for reintegration support. Persons who have their residence permit revoked pursuant to sections 7-8 of the Aliens Act or do not have it extended, will in principle also be covered by the target group. In addition, asylum seekers who are in phase 2, where the asylum case has been considered in Denmark, may drop their application for asylum and be covered by the scheme.
It is the Danish Return Agency's assessment of the person's own participation in the return planning that is decisive for whether the person can receive reintegration support.
It is also a requirement that the person in question has not been convicted of a serious crime. The nature of the crime is considered in the decision to award the reintegration support, so that more serious crimes such as crimes against state security, terrorism and dangerous crime exclude a person from receiving support.
It is the Danish authorities who decide whether an applicant meets the conditions for receiving reintegration support.
Our counsellors can help investigate whether an applicant meets the criteria for receiving reintegration support. Even if you meet the criteria, you cannot count on an active and/or available reintegration program for the country in question. It can affect case processing time.
