Greeting by the State Commissioner for Migration and Social Inclusion Doris Schröder-Köpf

More than 180, 000 people have come to Lower Saxony over the past year – many of them have come out of need, others because they found an occupation here, most of them because they had the desire to build a future for themselves in Lower Saxony. Occupational integration is an essential component of these people’s inclusion. In this regard, it is important to provide orientation:

Frau Schröder-Köpf BNW

Where do I find what in Lower Saxony? What region is the right one for me? How do job applications, employment contracts and health insurance work? How can I network with other immigrants? What integration initiatives are available? And naturally: Where are there specific offers to learn German, be it in the home country or on-site in Lower Saxony. Answers to all these questions – always with particular reference to the very personal environment – can be found on the Internet portal “Welcome to Niedersachsen” of the BNW.

Because of this, I, as State Commissioner for Migration and Social Inclusion, accepted the patronage for the migration portal of the BNW. It offers important information and networking opportunities for immigrants and asylum seekers for a successful start in Lower Saxony and is in addition easily accessible. With it we achieve above all one thing: integration in Lower Saxony.
