Despite the creation of more than 3,000 places in 2023, Fedasil ran out of places to accommodate all asylum seekers.
Last year, Fedasil assisted 2,952 persons who decided to return to their country of origin.
Belgium resettled 287 refugees last year, mostly Congolese and Syrians.
The Belgian resettlement programme for refugees has existed for 10 years.
The Belgian government has decided to set up a task force in charge of finding at least 2,000 temporary places for this winter.
Families of asylum seekers are temporarily accommodated in a youth hostel.
The year 2022 was once again marked by the saturation of our reception network, despite the thousands of places created.
Although the number of arrivals in the reception centre is stable, Fedasil is still confronted with a lack of places.
In 2023, Fedasil continues to benefit from a support of the European agency EUAA (containers, supply of staff and interpreters).
