Access to the Reception and Integration System

The Spanish government has a reception and integration support programme available to asylum applicants who lack sufficient financial means to meet their needs and those of their family unit. This programme is run by the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration in collaboration with specialised NGOs.

The programme is divided into several phases and lasts up to 18 months at the most, although it can be extended to 24 months in cases considered vulnerable.

During this time, you will be provided with accommodation anywhere within Spanish territory where there is available space. The support programme includes social assistance, psychological support, aid for training and languages courses and help in finding a job.

The Social Work Unit (UTS) of the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration is in charge of allocating places. You need to bear in mind that, although your personal circumstances will be assessed, if you request a place in the hosting programme, you cannot choose your place of residence because it depends on the available space within the national network of hosting centres.

How do I get into the reception system?

To enter the reception and integration system, you need to apply at the UTS.
