In the spotlight


The new centre at the Heysel, located in Palace 8, will make it possible to significantly increase the registration capacity of the refugees fleeing the conflict in Ukraine.

Ukrainians who have just arrived in Belgium must therefore go to Palace 8 to be registered. Information in Ukrainian will be provided on the different communication channels.

Since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, more than 6,000 refugees have registered in Belgium. About one third of them apply for and receive accommodation (2,059 people between the 4th and the 13th of March 2022).



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 33 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.
