In the spotlight


Last year, Belgium resettled 964 refugees on its territory. The aim was to resettle 1,463 people in 2021 but due to the saturation of Fedasil’s reception network and an increase in asylum applications in Belgium, the arrival of the other refugees has been delayed. The priority was given to the most vulnerable people.

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.
