Can I get a loan to return to the U.S.?
Yes, you can receive financial assistance to return to the U.S. Do not let finances stay in the way of returning to the U.S. if that is your intent.
Unfortunately, loans cannot be provided to pay for living expenses in Austria, or to transport you to a third country. There are no exceptions to this rule. The IRS will be the agency distributing the stimulus package money. Currently there is no further information about the checks.
