Information Centre for Voluntary Return (ZIRF)

The Information Centre for Voluntary Return offers reliable data in a comprehensive database on the infrastructure, economic situation or healthcare available, including in individual towns and cities or regions in the countries of origin:

  • national and international assisted return programmes,
  • information on more than 100 countries of origin,
  • answers to specific enquiries regarding the individual countries of origin, and
  • information material from the return counselling centres nationwide.


Return counselling centres can make specific enquiries regarding the individual countries of origin via ZIRF counselling.
Counselling covers a large number of topics and countries:

  • economic infrastructure,
  • the local housing and job market,
  • medical care, and
  • basic and further training available.

All the country-specific information, the query forms and any queries which may already have been answered that were submitted via ZIRF counselling are available on the ReturningfromGermany.de information portal (see right-hand column).
Prospective returnees should please address their individual questions to a return counselling centre.


The Information Centre for Voluntary Return was established at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees in July 2003 in connection with the new tasks for promoting voluntary return and return management.
