Voluntary return to Syria or a third country

Currently, IOM cannot assist Syrian migrants with their voluntary return to Syria.

If Syrian migrants wish to voluntarily return to /resettle in a third country, such as Turkey or Lebanon, they can however contact IOM. A precondition for this is that the person is/may come in possession of a long-term/permanent residence permit in that third country. Whether the conditions are met can be evaluated in each individual case. Based on the type of residence permit, IOM can look if the migrant may be assisted in the return / resettlement. IOM can also assist Syrians with an asylum status in the Netherlands with services aimed at family reunification.
