Who can apply for this additional support for assisted return? 

You may apply for this support if you have citizenship or a residence permit in Morocco and you either 

  • are staying in Norway without a residence permit
  • have received a rejection to your application for protection (asylum)
  • are waiting for an answer to your application for protection (asylum)
  • have received a rejection to another type of application for a residence permit 

You are entitled to reintegration support 

You are entitled to a reintegration support of € 2 000 that may be used for vocational training, courses or education, or starting up a business. Caritas Morocco and Fondation Orient-Occident will offer individual guidance to help you with this. You will not get this money paid out in cash. However, you will also be entitled to the normal support for assisted return. 

If the UDI believes that you will be particularly vulnerable if you return, we can increase the reintegration support to € 4 000. You will not get this money paid out in cash. The UDI will assess in each indicidual case whether you qualify for the support for vulnerable persons.
