Orientation BOOKLET for FILIPINOS IN germany
Are you new in Germany?
The 2nd edition of the free orientation booklet containing practical tips and information for newcomers and settlers in Germany will soon be available for you.
The “Orientation Booklet for Filipinos in Germany” was initially launched in 2014 in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Philippine-German diplomatic relations. This pocket-sized information booklet is specially tailored for use as a general "Guide" on the "basics" to help visiting Filipinos and newly-arrived migrants adapt and integrate in Germany. It contains practical tips and information based on current references and personal experience of the authors. The free digital copy has been shared online since May 26, 2014. In cooperation with generous donors, printed copies of the booklets have been produced and turned-over to the Philippine Embassy in Berlin for distribution to its consulates and clientele. Copies of the booklet were also shared with churches and organizations hosting Filipino congregations.
