61 Iraqis have returned home

At total of 61 persons with residence permits in Norway have returned to Iraq after the fall of Saddam’s regime. Six of these decided to return to Norway.

An additional, eight Iraqis with residence permits in Norway have ordered plane tickets and are preparing to go home, reported the Norwegian news bureau after viewing numbers from the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI).

UDI has gotten several requests after the fall of Saddam’s regime from Iraqi refugees in Norway who want to return home. Norwegian authorities have therefore organized two schemes for voluntary return to Iraq, one for Iraqis who have been granted residence permit in Norway and one for those who have not.
