List of countries

On this page, you can see an overview of the countries where a rejected asylum seeker can apply for reintegration support if you meet certain criteria and leave voluntarily for your home country.

Background information

The reintegration support comes from the Danish authorities, but it is partner organizations and local service providers in the countries in question who handle the specific task. For several countries, it is possible to apply for reintegration support, even if there is not yet an active cooperation agreement with a local reintegration partner. A longer case processing time can be expected for these countries.

The list of countries is divided according to program provider (ERRIN, ERSO or DRC) as well as active and inactive cooperation agreements. You can read more about terms for reintegration support at the bottom of the page.
