Return – Where to?

During your stay in Germany , time did not stand still in your home country. Many things have changed – some have improved, some may have deteriorated.

Therefore the decision on a return to the home country should always be thoroughly considered. This also applies if you are obliged to leave Germany .

Note: Please consider that a voluntary compliance of the obligation to leave offers certain chances for organizing your leave. In the case of a deportation, a compulsory enforcement of your leave, you can neither determine the time of your leave nor your destination.

The return or the voluntary compliance of the obligation to leave is especially benefited in Germany . For these cases, various advice centers for repatriates have been set up in Germany .
