Living in Switzerland – Information and counselling online  


Information and advice about returning to your country is avaliable from various sources: refugee support groups, cantonal and  communal authorities produce regular reports on developments and projects in the field of assisted return. They hold individual consultations to help asylum seekers who want or need to plan their return. They also provide support services for those willing to participate in a return programme.

In this context, consultation services help those interested with:
  • Travel arrangements;
  • Obtaining travel and identity documents;
  • Obtaining financial help with travel expenses;
  • Obtaining reimbursement of certain taxes and pension funds;
  • Clarifying the possibility of help with the costs of continuing necessary medical treatment on arrival;
  • Participating in suitable return and reintegration programmes.
