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.

21,500 asylum seekers are being received in Fedasil centres and by Fedasil’s partner organisations. A total of 23,750 places are available.

Reception centres

Belgium has about 60 reception centres for applicants for international protection , accounting for 2/3 of the capacity of the total reception network. In addition to the 21 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.
