I wanted to say "Welcome back to your home country!" but I'm not sure if this is correct. Should I say "in" instead of "to" or is there a better way of saying this?

    Return back is redundant! Welcome back to your home country! is good. – mahmud koya Apr 13 '17 at 6:38

    'Welcome home' seems the most idiomatic. – Edwin Ashworth Apr 13 '17 at 9:02

    Definitely not "in" - "to" is the correct word. Unless it's significant that their "home" (as opposed to their "home country") is somewhere else, just "Welcome home!" is the right phrase. If you do want to separate "home" from "home country" then something like "xx welcomes you back!" could do it where xx is the country. – PCurd Apr 13 '17 at 9:16

    Agree with @EdwinAshworth. I would simply say "Welcome Home!" as a native English (USA) speaker. This is what you would most often see on a banner, say, when a soldier returns from an oversees deployment, for example. But there's nothing incorrect grammatically with "Welcome back to your home country!" to answer your question. – iMerchant Apr 13 '17 at 9:30

    great input from everyone, thank you! @PCurd I liked your comment the most so far, so if you'd post it as an answer, I will mark it as accepted. – Cold_Class Apr 13 '17 at 13:04
