In the spotlight


Since 2013, Fedasil has provided staff to EASO, the European Asylum Support Office, for missions lasting approximately 8 weeks.

Last year, 23 staff members took part in a mission for EASO, which is twice as many as in 2016. Most of the missions involved the hotspots in Greece and Italy, but also in Cyprus and Bulgaria:

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.
