Support for returning to country of origin

If you have had your application for asylum rejected and have to return to your country of origin you may be entitled to support from the Swedish Migration Agency. You can apply for cash support, but there are also other forms of support to help you to return to society in your country of origin.

Cash support for reestablishment
