In the spotlight


In response to the coronavirus, the centres for asylum seekers in Belgium keep applying strict prevention and hygiene measures (for both the staff and the residents).

Like everybody else in Belgium, the asylum seekers have to comply with the decisions taken by the federal authorities of the country. They must limit the number of close contacts and be quarantined if they have had high-risk contacts with an infected person.

Reception centres

Belgium has about 80 reception centres for applicants for international protection, accounting for 3/4 of the capacity of the total reception network. In addition to the 28 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.
