Voluntary Return is a free service for people thinking about returning to their country of origin. It is available for citizens of countries outside of the European Union. If you decide that this is the right choice for you, we can take care of everything including booking your flights and making sure you have all the documents you need to travel. Each year, we provide this free service to lots of people just like you and we will be here every step of the way.



We’re here to listen to your story, make sure you know all your options and to explain how our service works.

Visit one of our offices in the Czech Republic.

Our office hours are Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm. 


Once you have all the information you need, you can take some time to think about your next step. You can change your mind at any stage of the process. If you decide that voluntary return is the right choice for you, we’ll assist you throughout the process in getting tickets and necessary travel documents.


We’ll meet you at the airport, we’ll have your tickets ready and our team will even help you check-in for your flight.

Once you land, we can arrange transportation from the airport to your final destination.


If you decide to settle down in your country of origin, we can support you to stand on your own feet (if you choose to return to education or start your own business etc.).
