Bringing stranded citizens home

The EU supports Member States in organizing the repatriation of EU citizens from across the world, wherever they may be.

Once a Member State activates the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, the Commission’s Emergency Response Coordination Centre coordinates repatriations closely with Member States. The Commission can co-finance up to 75% of the transport costs. Non-EU citizens can also benefit from this assistance.
