Integration courses
Ca. 700 lessons, one lesson = 45 minutes)

For refugees entitled to asylum or recognized as a refugee, participation in an integration course is usually mandatory. Integration courses do cost money but case-by-case, the costs maybe recovered later.

For refugees without recognition, participation is voluntary, but not all groups of origin can participate in the courses. Only asylum seekers coming from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, and Eritrea who already have asylum approval or proof of registration upon arrival may participate in the integration courses. Likewise, people who have been granted suspension of deportation according to Sect. 60a (2) sentence 3 of the German Residence Act or persons with a residence permit in accordance with Sect. 25 (5) of the Residence Act have the opportunity to take integration courses. In general, the attendance is decided case-by-case.

For these groups, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) issues qualification certificates which the persons must present to an integration course provider within 3 months to register for an integration course. The certificates are issued upon application for asylum or on request from BAMF.
