Orientation BOOKLET for FILIPINOS IN germany
Are you new in Germany?
A free orientation booklet containing practical tips and information for newcomers and settlers in Germany is available for you. Information on residence permit, filling-up bank SEPA forms, scholarship sites, useful web links, basic German words, "do's and don'ts" and many other information about integrating in Germany may be found in this quick guide. Long-term residents in Germany also find the booklet a useful source of updated information. This reference booklet was custom-made for Filipino migrants, but most of the contents would also be useful for all newly-arrived migrants in Germany. Visiting scholars, professors, scientists, diplomats and usual visitors would also benefit from the compact information in the booklet.
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-size (A6) information booklet is specially tailored for use as a concise 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 (Dr. Jingky Lozano-Kühne and Ms. Maria Renee Juan-Wolff) who also spearheaded the project. 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.
A free downloadable copy of the latest 2016 edition of the booklet is now available (Please click the download link on this webpage). Feel free to share this information or post it on your website and social networks. The booklet contains a written permission that it can be printed and distributed worldwide for non-profit purposes.
