In the spotlight


Applicants for international protection (asylum) are entitled to material assistance during the examination of their application for international protection. 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.). Applicants do not receive any financial assistance.

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 20 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.
