The CAI - integration contract (Contrat d'accueil et d'intégration) is provided by the Office luxembourgeois de l’accueil et de l’intégration (OLAI) to help newly arrived people to integrate in Luxembourg. The CAI is available to everyone aged 16 or more, legally residing in Luxembourg and wishing to stay in the country for a longer period of time. It is optional and open for people originating from member states and non-member states of the European Union who have just arrived in Luxembourg or who have been residing in the country for some years already.
The available options are:
1. Language training (Formation linquistique) to reach at least level A.1.1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, i.e. Luxembourgish, French or German. CAI signatories may enrol in language courses at a reduced rate.
2. Civil education courses (Cours d’instruction civique) help people understand integration and the conditions of living in a diverse Luxembourg as a community. They also learn about the history of Luxembourg as well as its political organisation, habits and customs. Courses are organised together with the OLAI and the Department of Adult Education.
3. Journée d’orientation (guidance day) is organised two times a year together with numerous partners to allow signatories of the CAI to familiarise with official institutions and organisations in Luxembourg.
