Dear RQA candidate, the selection of the RQA candidates for this year is now completed. Please wait for new vacancies for the next year project on January 2018.

The RQA program focused on the return of qualified Afghan nationals scattered in IR Iran, who are motivated to contribute their skills for the benefit of the reconstruction process on short or long-term basis in their home country. RQA candidates from Iran generally return with their family members. This is a clear indication that those returning under the RQA project intend to stay in Afghanistan permanently which ensures a more sustainable contribution to the reconstruction process than temporary returns. In order to enhance the sustainability aspect of this project, some facilities have been foreseen for those who are willing to return with their families so that the cost of the return of the main applicants and his/her immediate families is covered within the project.
