Norway Offers Refugees Cash To Leave The Country

Tyler Durden's picture

As European countries deal with the current refugee crisis, each is taking a slightly different approach in response to the escalating situation. In Norway, which has been shocked by the unfolding events in neighboring Sweden which has seen a mass revulsion at the ongoing refugee onslaught (and which recently announced it won't accept any more refugees from the EU) the answer appears to be the simplest possible one: offer asylum seekers money to leave.

Asylum seekers at the Bjørnebekk asylum centre in Ås

Currently, refugees who decide to return to their home country instead of seeking asylum in Norway are given 20,000 kroner (USD $2,400) for travel expenses by the Norwegian government (up to 80,000 kroner for a family with two children). Now, as RT reports, Norway will sweeten the deal, and provide an additional 10,000 kroner (USD $1,200) to the first 500 asylum seekers who apply for voluntary return to their home countries.

Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug had the following to say about the bonus program: "We need to entice more [people] 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 centers. There are also many who are not entitled to protection and, by all means, are going to be rejected. It's better for us to stimulate their travel back."


A total of 35,358 asylum seekers arrived in Norway in 2015, up from 11,480 the prior year. Given the influx of refugees primarily fleeing a war torn Syria, it's understandable to want to have a protocl in which the asylum seekers are processed within the system.

What may be disturbing to some, ostensibly those who initially urged Europe to accept as many refugees as possible only to realize after the fact that "cultural integration" is far different than presented in glossy pamphlets and occasionally leads to mass violence, a surge in rapes and lots of screaming, is the cheapening of human life to the point where the idea of throwing a few thousand USD at people will completely erase the fact that the migrants "home" is no longer a home, and going back would presumably mean putting one's self and/or family back in harm's way.

To most others, this will be a great outcome, especially since the incremental cost of booting the new asylum seekers is relatively low.

To qualify for the additional 10,000 kroner to cover travel costs, asylum seekers must have arrived in Norway prior to April 1st and must not have overstayed their legal length of stay.
The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration said the goal of the bonus was to stimulate a faster voluntary return of those asylum seekers who do not have a legitimate protection claim in Norway. It remans to be seen how this program will be gamed and abused.

The rapefugees can go on tour.  Paid to leave each place to go destroy another place.  On and on and on.....

What happened to the fierce Norse Men?


Where are the freaking Men with the courage to pick up guns and force the invaders onto boats at gunpoint?


No cash needed.  Just shoot a few of the SJWs to encourage the invaders to climb aboard.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Offer them money to leave???


Hey Norwegian government: what's the use of having a monopoly of force when you won't use it against foreign invaders?? Un fucking believable.

El Vaquero's picture

How long until they are offering them a bullet to stay?  That's where this is heading. 


Instead of offering them money to leave, just cut the fucking benefits off.  They'll leave.

Meanwhile, in the US, we continue to pay 'asylum seekers' to stay.  Look how well that's working out! Oh wait...

HopefulCynical's picture

Pay them to leave?


1) Accept money.

2) Leave.

3) Return.

4) Rinse, repeat.

The Norwegians are perfectly happy to keep membership in the NATO psycho club, their young men join NATO fake forces to do the merc work for the US by destroying places like Libya and Syria. And yet they cannot defend their own society from internal stupidity and violent, foreign welfare queens.

Norway is a goner.

That may be one of the ways Trump gets the Illegal Aliens out of the U.S. after the fence is built.  Alternatively, they can be put in detention camps to await their court asylum hearing which could be years or they can just leave.

BTW, after we have the terroist attack and it is learned that they crossed into the country from Mexico everyone in the U.S. will get behind the Trump Wall.

Hey Norway, we'll make it easier on you. My wife, my five kids, and I won't even come to your country. You can send the money to me here, and we'll call it good. Whaddayasay?

Norway isn't in the EU or the Euro.

If the money is fiat, the joke's on them.

Rapefugees should ask for payment in gold and silver.

vollderlerby's picture

Send them to Germany.  German girls can't wait to get their heads fucked through the floor boards by the refugees instead of getting cuddled by metrosexuals

ConfederateH's picture

Its not the German metrosexuals, it's all the German tarts whose brains belong to the tribe.

When you pay the danegeld, the Dane only goes away for a while.   

Fuck these are the people that INVENTED danegeld

Monopoly of force, you say? This is how women run countries into the ground. The European power vacuum is sucking in the rapefugees.

They leave to Germany then? maybe for a second money-check.

"What happened to the fierce Norse Men?"

The same thing that happened to most males in the West. Feminism. Heck males have to sit all prissy like with knees together or crossed or risk fines on a subway,,, assuming they're not in jail for not paying their better half forever child support and alimony for that *free* nookie until the little woman found greener pastures. 

These are gonna be the John Wayne's riding in with guns a blazing to save us???... ROFLMAO.

There are verrrry few men these days.

They died. Literally. What is left is over-feminized skinny-jeans manginas that are afraid of being called a racist. They let this happen to them and there should be no pity for them - this is the only way they can learn. This is the only way average 'norse man' will learn. It's cultural suicide - and while everyone post the nordic countries as an example for social engineering that results in what we see right now.

It would be a hoot to have that ZH member Erik Microgonadson or whatever the hell his name is pop in on the conversation here, and give us his (unfortunately not so unique) eunuch perspective on the subject.  I do wonder if he is not just that MillionDollarBonus guy under another guise.

Sounds like a Road Trip if other countries catch on. 

Refugee  tours Monday Norway $500 Tuesday Sweden $1000 and by the time they work their way around to Germany they can retire in a million dollar home.

Rinse repeat, just like Wall St.

The program was a roaring success.  Most refugees have already left the country several times now, and more are leaving every day.  Of course they were here before 1 April.  We know this because they TOLD us!

PT's picture

I wonder if they'll pay me to leave too.  Can we do it online?  No people or precious resources being wasted on my being there.  With all the money I save them they can afford to pay me extra.

Hell, just promise me I'll never have to eat lutefisk and I'm good.

I think he already did. These guys are probably on the run from being in "ISIS" since the cash "ran out"

What we have here is natural selection at work.

It won't be long until the European liberal retards are extinct.

BeaverCream's picture

Can we do the same with Bernie Sander's supporters? They can have all the free socialist shit they want somewhere in Europe, where they're paying muslims to leave.

malek's picture

Why don't you appreciate Bernie and his supporters' hard work to bring this sucker down quicker.

Mister Integration Minister, can I take my Kroner and leave now, and return next month for my bit part as an abused refugee in "Lilyhammer"?

fleur de lis's picture

That is just what will happen. They will take the cash and leave, then return for another tax free payoff. Whole families will get in on the merry-go-round. They will return and set up a business to send refugees who will collect and come back. They will set up other disgusting businesses as well. Other will take the cash and leave, then realize what they did, and will return and get lost in the system. NO WAY will they give up a cushy life on welfare for a rough life back home.

The only way this would work will be if they docu/photo and fingerprint those who take the bonus and forbid return. It will not work. Norwegian resolve will wear down quickly. Then the complaints will roll in -- if he got money why didn't I, etc. Only absolute deportation and come cash to get started will work. For a while.

PT's picture

I would not be surprised if this is a deliberate action so in future they can "justify" fingerprinting the entire population.

Spungo's picture

What a dumb idea. Here's a better one: get out or we shoot you.

Azannoth's picture

Why not just round them up and ship them out, at gun point?!

PT's picture

In the old days you just had to point your gun and they made their own travel arrangements.



Speaking of which, how did they get there in the first place? ...

The 'refugees' need to hire Al Sharpton -- he knows how to organize a shakedown.

What,... are you people (Norwegians) stoopid? Why pay them to leave? Just escort them to where they entered your country and show them the door. The door OUT! 

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

That door 'out', oftentimes, leads to your neighboring country. It's not nice to mess with Mother Nature the neighbors.

dirtscratcher's picture

To fuckin' bad. It's through the neighbor's portal that they came through in the first place. It'd be just returnung the 'favor'.

I wonder if i could go to Norway claim asylum  - get 3,000 - leave - and travel europe for the summer?

GeezerGeek's picture

If Hitlery wins in November that may seem more attractive, even without the 3000.

balz's picture

Bad idea. More will come, get the 3000$, and go elsewhere.

PT's picture

Pffft!  You really think they'll leave?

Norway should simply make them an offer they can't refuse. Let a few of them wake up some morning with a pig's head under the covers.

Mountainview's picture

Yes, they come back with a new passport and new name.

Hmmm, paying refugees the equivalent of a plane ticket to America to leave.  Guess where they are going?

BeaverCream's picture

Castro figured out how to troll america with this tactic 30 years ago.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

You mention Castro. It occured to me the other day that, in the mid-60s, we went literally halfway around the world to invade a communist country. Why the fuck didn't we invade the one sitting literally on our doorstep?? Just invoke the Monroe Doctrine, and get it done. JFK really fucked that one up. He should have shitcanned the Bay of Pigs plan and just authorized a full-on declaration of war and invasion. It would have been a cakewalk compared to Viet Nam, and frankly, everyone would have been much better off.
