Terminated reception services

Reception services are terminated for asylum seekers who cannot be refused entry and returned to their home country by the police, but who can return to their home country on their own initiative. Refusal of entry is not possible, for ex-ample, because of a lack of suitable traffic connections to the applicant’s home country or because the applicant’s home country refuses to receive persons who have been forcibly returned.

The police inform the reception centre if they are unable to remove a certain person from the country. After this, the person in question has 30 days to return to his or her home country on their own initiative or apply for assisted volun-tary return.
