Material assistance for foreigners who are subject of a return decision and are taken in public custody


     Target groups

- Foreign nationals under public custody, subject to a return decision under escort

- Minors accompanying their parents, foreign nationals under public custody who are subject to a return decision.


• Counselling and informing migrants about forced return operations and the rules which should be respected during these missions and about migrants’ rights and obligations and the rules of conduct in accommodation centers for foreigners taken into public custody.

• Providing services and specific assistance (including material assistance), complementarily to that assured by the state to third country nationals in public custody centres;

• Assistance for subsistence and travel purposes for returnees;

      To achieve these objectives, the project proposes a series of activities which aim to cover a broad range of services and specific forms of assistance. These services respond to the specific needs of migrants pre- and during the effective implementation of the return decision. Through the project, we provide migrants appropriate clothing, footwear, luggages and packages with food for the travel, with a special emphasis on the assistance provided to vulnerable groups.

     We provide interpretation services for migrants who don’t speak Romanian and who need to be assisted in a language they can understand.
