Voluntary return only


The European Return and Reintegration Network is an initiative of 16 European states that helps to ensure that people on the move can return home in a dignified and humane manner. ERRIN is working with local organisations on the ground in 40 countries, offering comprehensive assistance for returning migrants. Following the initial aid provided right upon arrival, the reintegration support may involve support for housing, medical treatment, vocational training and educational needs, or setting up a business.

About the French Office of Immigration and Integration (OFII) 

In Senegal, we work with OFII. The reintegration assistance is provided in every region of Senegal for returnees who have returned under the ERRIN programme. OFII is a French public agency. Part of their work is to assist voluntary returnees from France to their country of origin. OFII has offices in several countries, among other in Senegal, who take care of persons after their return.

Considering going back to Senegal supported by ERRIN?

Ask your social worker or counsellor for details. If you have already returned to Senegal, contact our local partner – OFII.
