The Centre for Foreigners JMK

The Centre for Foreigners JMK is open to all foreigners from the first day of their arrival in the South Moravian Region. Throughout its ten years of existence, the Center has been struggling to support the assimilation of foreigners into Czech society. The main goal is to ensure equal access to integration services and to qualified integration support. The priority of the Centre for foreigners JMK is to provide services and qualified support for every foreigner with legal status in the Czech Republic through an individual approach in a friendly environment of willingness and openness.
