Information for arrivals to Italy


Our arrival materials encompass pertinent information for individuals arriving as refugees or asylum seekers to a country in the European Union.

We are currently conducting research and working on the text for our information for arrivals to Italy. When complete this information will be available on this site.

We will be working in southern Italy distributing materials in the form of booklets and flyers. We will also distribute phones and tablets with vital information and contacts, as well as applications for language, transportation, and safety.

Our information for arrivals will include the following information in a physical pamphlet format followed by more detail for each category on our website:

  1. Available camps and shelters
