What is Financial Support to Assisted Voluntary Return (FSR)?
Financial Support to Assisted Voluntary Return (FSR) is a return service with reintegration support program for asylum seekers and migrants in an irregular situation who wish to return voluntarily from Norway to their country of origin. It is a return option organized with the interest and participation of the returnee.
The distribution of the grants depends on when you decide to return:
UDI has instituted changes and its contributions in programmes and projects administered and facilitated with IOM. It is important that you understand these changes that may affect your return. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact IOM immediately at 2310 5320 to speak confidentially with an IOM counsellor.
