Prague is not only the largest city in the Czech Republic, it is also the city with the highest percentage of foreigners. The Centre for Support of the Integration of Foreigners was newly opened there in August 2012. There are 11 such centres in total all over the Czech Republic.

The services of the centre are primarily aimed at refugees and foreigners from the so-called third world, who are offered help with integrating themselves into Czech society.

It is possible to communicate with the staff of the centre via the Internet but the employees themselves often go out to public places, where they hand out leaflets and inform foreigners about their activities. They are able to help newcomers with issues such as processing documents and dealing with authorities. The staff also provides legal and psychological services, requalification courses and Czech language courses.
