Nurturing a Culture of Welcome

Most newly-arrived immigrants in Germany have a lot of questions, and are keen to establish contacts with people in their new area. The Federal Office therefore supports projects which welcome new immigrants and help them to take their first steps in their new environment.

Joint civic commitment

Whether it be training in a sports club, after-school tuition or language courses, many leisure and additional programmes would not be possible without volunteers. Immigrants play a crucial role in this aspect of life.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
