  2. The return component seeks to assist 132 beneficiaries by arranging their voluntary return by providing pre-departure assistance, and pre-departure cash allowance (50 EUR) to facilitate onward transportation in the countries of origin, obtaining travel documentation, organizing fit-to-travel medical examination, providing escorts (if necessary), purchasing travel tickets and travel insurance, providing departure, transit and arrival assistance, etc.

  4. The evaluation component includes a post-arrival questionnaire with beneficiaries who benefited from reintegration assistance in the countries of origin. The answers will be analyzed and transformed into recommendations, based on which the program can be further improved.
