Mobile Application For Foreigners

Caritas Poland launched a mobile application for foreigners applying for international protection in Poland. The application will inform users about what legal, medical and social assistance they can receive in Poland.

The application under the name “First Steps in Poland” is to help foreigners to find and adapt in Poland. It is available in Arabic, Russian, English and Polish. The application is supported by iOS and Android systems, which will benefit the most interested users. Thanks to the application, foreigners will learn how to legalize their stay in Poland, how the social assistance system works, where they can use from the suport, about their rights in the labour market and in the field of medical care.

Caritas Poland implemented a project in partnership with the Office for Foreigners and Caritas of the diocese of Bialystok, Siedlce, Lublin, Warsaw and Zielonogórsko-Gorzow. The project was implemented within the framework of the “Nowy Dom Polska” project using the Asylum Migration and Integration Fund.
