In 2014, 162 refugees returned to their countries of origin after they have received their residence permit in Denmark – usually it happens after many years in Denmark. A total of 2,220 Bosnian refugees have returned home. A refugee can get financial support and personal guidance from the Danish Refugee Council if she/he wants to return home. The reason why so relatively few return is probably a combination of many conflicts dragging on for years, and because refugees settle down here and will feel half Danish after some time. In addition, the children will grow up without a strong tie to the parents' home country.
