Holiday period at Fedasil

The arrival centre of Fedasil (Brussels) adapts its opening days during the holiday period.
Reopening of the Info Point

Due to the coronavirus measures, the Info Point of the arrival centre was temporarily closed. Starting Tuesday 15 December 2020, it is open again. Asylum seekers who wish to receive information on the right to reception or to reintegrate the reception, can go there from Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 12:30pm.

In order to respect the sanitary measures, the waiting room of the Info Point will only be accessible to the public of asylum seekers who reintegrate the reception.

Opening days

During the holiday period, the arrival centre and the Info Point will be closed on Friday 25 December 2020 and on Friday 1st January 2021. Therefore, people who wish to apply for international protection cannot register their application on those days.
