Putting people first: providing security, creating opportunities, embracing change

Franco-German co-operation

The BAMF and the Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Intégration (OFII) have been working together since October 2013 within the framework of the "URA" return project.

OFII would now like to use the "URA" infrastructure in a pilot project to support the voluntary return from France of returnees with their reintegration in Kosovo. An identically-structured project is already underway as part of the RACOB return project in Armenia, for which the existing OFII infrastructure is being used for returnees to Armenia from Germany.

The two national authorities are fulfilling their task of implementing the "objectives of the joint memorandum of understanding in working together in reintegration issues". This memorandum of understanding was signed in Berlin on 22 January 2013 by the German Federal Minister of the Interior and his French counterpart.

Date 20 January 2014

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.
