Frequently Asked Questions

What is the guest required to do?

The guest is required to comply with the Welcome Agreement signed with the host. He or she has no other obligations. If there are further requests, they must be agreed mutually. The Vesta staff can be consulted for any questions.

After the scheduled period, can I extend the hospitality?

No, Vesta is a project devoted to integration, not pure welfare. Hospitality in a family is seen as a moment of transition, not a final goal. Furthermore, if the prescribed times are respected, it is possi-ble to allow others to experience the experience of hospitality in a home.

What exactly is am ‘international protection applicant (asylum seeker)’?

An applicant for international protection is a person who, outside his or her country of origin, pre-sents an application for international protection in another state. The applicant remains with this sta-tus until the competent authorities (in Italy the territorial Commissions for the recognition of inter-national protection) decide on the application for protection.
