Asylum seekers are entitled to material assistance during the examination of their asylum application. This assistance consists of receiving and guiding them within a reception structure managed by Fedasil or entrusted to its partners (the Red Cross, public social welfare centres, etc.). Asylum seekers do not receive any financial assistance.

17,700 asylum seekers are being received in Fedasil centres and by Fedasil’s partner organisations. A total of 24,400 places are available.

Reception centres

Belgium has about 60 reception centres for asylum seekers, accounting for 2/3 of the capacity of the total reception network. In addition to the 17 federal centres managed by Fedasil, there are reception centres managed by partners. The remaining places are in individual houses, organized by the local municipalities or NGOs.
