 This 2012 English-language edition of Welcome to the United States: Refugee Guide to Resettlement DVD provides information and images about refugee resettlement. Viewers can watch selected refugees from their airport arrival through their first days in the United States, as well as hear from refugees who have been living in the United States for some time. While the video is applicable to all refugee populations, the 2012 version focuses on showing refugees from currently arriving populations, such as Bhutanese, refugees from Burma, refugees from Iraq, and Somalis. Shown in Cultural Orientation programs overseas as well as in the United States, the Welcome video can be used as a standalone resource, but is also designed to complement the Welcome guide. http://www.culturalorientation.net/providing-orientation/toolkit/welcome/english-welcome-to-the-united-states-dvd
