Family Reunification & Voluntary Repatriation


I want to be reunified with my family in a third country. Can UNHCR help me?

Depending on the country where your family member(s) is/are, the procedures may differ and for some countries, UNHCR may be in a position to provide support; however, opportunities for family reunification are very limited.

If you have already been interviewed by UNHCR for family reunification purposes, UNHCR will contact you when/if your family reunification application is successful.

If you have not told UNHCR about family members in other countries, you need to call the UNHCR Protection hotline at  📞 0917127644 to provide details about the family members, how you are related to them and in which country(ies) they reside, and UNHCR will assess whether it is feasible to initiate a family reunification process.

I want to go back to my country. Can UNHCR help me?

UNHCR is committed to ensuring that returns take place in conditions of safety and dignity. UNHCR may be able to provide information on the conditions in your country to help you make an informed decision. In many cases UNHCR, IOM, or other organizations can pay for your travel, and may provide financial and other assistance upon your arrival home.

If you would like information about the possibility of returning to your country of origin, please call the Tawasul hotline at  📞 1404.
