The "URA" return project was awarded the Mother Teresa Prize in October 2010. This is a prize awarded by the President of Kosovo for services rendered to the citizens of the Republic of Kosovo. It was awarded for the first time on the centenary of Mother Teresa's birth to ten organisations and people who had given support to the Republic of Kosovo during and after the war.

Two years later, jointly with organisations such as NATO and the UN, the URA project received an "award for the support of the Kosovan people".

Two stone tablets to honour the organisations were dedicated in the capital city, Pristina, by Memli Krasniqi, the Minister for Education, Science and Technology on 12 June 2012.

The following words are engraved on the stone tablets: "Expressing our appreciation and gratitude for your human act by protecting and supporting the people of Kosova, and the universal values of civilization and humanity in the years 1990–2012".

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
