Welcome to Germany - A guide for unaccompanied minors

You arrived here alone and sure you have a lot of questions. This booklet should help answer your questions and it should explain to you who to ask. We want to help you understand what happens to you here and what possibilities and rights you have. We are a group of young people who have made similar experiences as you. Here, there are many people that are there for you and support you, that’s why we say: You are not alone!

This booklet has six parts, an overview of the topics can be found on the next page. On the next pages, we explain to you what happens during your starting time in Germany, which possibilities and rights you have and with which people and departments you have to deal with. An organisation called BUMF eV produced these guides.
