About the migration counselling
for adult immigrants

The counselling service "Migration counselling for Adult Immigrants" (Migrationsberatung für erwachsene Zugewanderte, MBE), which is funded by the federal government, is part of the federal integration services. Since 2005, it has offered well-established contact points and counselling centers for people with an immigration history throughout Germany. The six umbrella organizations of the Non-statutory Welfare and the Federation of Expellees (Bund der Vertriebenen) are implementing the MBE and organise the counselling on site.

The socio-educational counselling and support of adult immigrants and their families is supplemented by networking in the local community. The counselling centers work according to high professional standards and to the great satisfaction of those seeking advice.

The counselling program is funded from the federal budget through the Federal Ministry of the Interior and for Home Affairs (BMI). The authority approving the funds is the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). Counselling and support are provided on the basis of Section 45 1st sentence of the Residence Act (AufenthG) and Section 9 Paragraph 1, 4th sentence of the Federal Expellees Act (BVFG).
