Serhat TUNAR -TDO- In the first 10 months of 2019, Denmark sent nearly 450 migrants and refugees back to the country they came from, on a voluntary basis and giving money.
According to figures given by the Danish Migration Council, since May 71 Syrian citizens have been paid 140 thousand kronor per person (21 thousand dollars) to return to their country.
This project, launched in Denmark to encourage the return of migrants, allows refugees and migrants to retain their residence permits for one year, even if they leave Denmark, while allowing them to return if they change their mind during that time.
According to the Danish Migration Council, this clause added to the incentive for repatriation project has significantly accelerated the return of migrants.
The problems the migrants suffered in finding jobs in Denmark are also thought to have played a key role in their leaving the country.
Denmark is expected to pay over 100 million kronor for the back-laying incentive project by the end of the year.
