Norway to asylum seekers: We'll pay you extra to leave
The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration's (Utlendingsdirektoratet - UDI) is offering a 10,000 kroner bonus to asylum seekers to leave voluntarily.
UDI will offer an additional 10,000 kroner to the first 500 asylum seekers who apply for a voluntary return to their home countries. Beginning on Monday, the offer will run for six weeks on a first-come, first-served basis.
"We need to entice more to voluntarily travel back by giving them a bit more money on their way out. This will save us a lot of money because it is expensive to have people in the asylum centres," Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug told broadcaster NRK.
