Welcome to Migration Counselling  (MBE) of Mosaik Leipzig!

The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees supports counselling for adult immigrants in order to offer newly immigrated persons the necessary individual and tangible assistance for almost all aspects of everyday life.


Our Counselling Services
