Integration of Foreigners

We offer assistance to foreign nationals who find themselves in need or in a situation that they cannot solve on their own. In most cases, these are problems related to residence permit, social security, health care, help with finding accommodation, employment or education. We emphasise integration activities facilitating the integration of migrants and refugees into the Czech society. We facilitate the work of institutions and contribute to the problem-free coexistence of the majority society and the newcomers.
