How does I am Refugee work?
Depending on the status of the decision on asylum, everyone has different possibilities regarding the integration in Austria. There are 8 steps for a successful integration in Austria:
As an asylum seeker I should use the time in the asylum accommodation to…
- learn German
- work as a volunteer, since I don’t have a working permit in Austria, yet
- get information about this country
- find Austrian friends
- receive education and
- use my day in a structured way, so that the time spent in the asylum accommodation is not time lost.
As soon as I have my decision on asylum or subsidiary protection, I should…
- go to work
- find an apartment
- register at the „Österreichischen Integrationsfonds“ (ÖIF) to get advice regarding my integration.
The team of I am Refugee is 100% sure that these are the main steps for success in Austria. Once you follow these 8 steps, you have everything to be as successful as an Austrian in Austria.
