Broschure: Integrated refugee management – A new system for Germany

Date 17 July 2017
type Booklet

The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees has implemented an integrated system for refugee management. The heart of this system are the arrival centers. At the arrival center, many previously separate steps in the asylum procedure are now bundled into one integrated process. Whenever possible, the entire asylum procedure takes place "under one roof" in the arrival center. As a result, the arrival centers are now the doorway to the asylum procedure in Germany – and to all relevant social services. Meanwhile, there is now at least one arrival center in each of Germany’s 16 federal states.

display as attention: Notice

The brochure "Integrated refugee management" was updated last in March 2017. Since then, there has been a change in procedure: The "Cluster procedure" is no longer in use (pg. 11-13). An updated version of the brochure is planned for early 2018. Until then, all current information is available on our website under "Asylum and refugee protection".
