    Return Home

    In English,is there any specific usage of conveying the idea of returning home for good after being abroad either for a living or as a diasporan?

    Or is 'return/ing home' enough?

    Not a teacher.

    To express the permanence, I would probably say that he "moved back home."

    It's not a commonly used word, but repatriation has this meaning.
