There are independent counselling centres, such as welfare organisations.
There are governmental counselling centres, for example in social welfare offices or foreigners’ registration offices.
Return counselling is:
- individual. This means that the advice is for you personally.
- not binding. This means that you can decide what you want to do later. The advice does not oblige you to leave Germany.
- open-ended. This means that the advice does not have any specified objective.
