Vietnamese Refugee Orientation Handbook.

This handbook addresses itself to Vietnamese refugees and is intended to help them cope with everyday situations in the United States. The entire text is given in both Vietnamese and English. The three main sections are: (1) Refugee Status--information about the legal status of refugees, identification procedures, obligations, some Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) procedures and functions, and assistance available from volunteer agencies, sponsors, and government agencies, (2) Information about the United States--the land, climate and people, government structure and services, local laws, and official holidays, and (3) Living in the United States--information and suggestions about housing, health care, food, employment, education, finances, business ownership, transportation, shopping, and community resources. An appendix gives a list of Immigration and Naturalization Offices throughout the country, a map of the United States and conversion tables for temperature and measures. (TL)
