Living and Working in Germany

The project “Pre-Integration in the Regions of South-East Asia and South-East Europe” provides a platform with which the Goethe-Institut can inform migrants in advance of the challenges they will face when relocating, whether from Belgrade to Berlin or Jakarta to Buxtehude.

What ist Pre-Integration?

Those who wish to permanently migrate to Germany for professional or private reasons receive qualified assistance in their preparation. The Goethe-Institut prepares you comprehensively, not only for language skills but also for life in Germany.

This happens in the form of:

  • consulting services via phone, email or person-to-person
  • information resources
  • seminars
  • virtual sources


Our target group are joining spouses and professional migrants.
