Migration Policies

New migrant repatriation scheme

The second phase of a repatriation scheme aimed at returning more than 2,000 migrants to their homelands is due to get under way next month with citizens of war-ravaged countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Sudan topping the priority list. The program, heralded by the Citizens’ Protection Ministry, has a budget of 5 million euros, 75 percent of which is to be covered by European Union subsidies.
