Asylum seekers

About

The Law of 22 January 2007 states that every asylum seeker in Belgium is entitled to reception from the moment the asylum seeker submits the request and for the duration of the procedure. Fedasil, the federal agency for the reception of asylum seekers, assigns the asylum seeker to a reception location in a collective centre or in individual housing, depending on the vulnerability of that person. As commissioned by the government, Caritas International has been organising the reception of asylum seekers in individual housing for 15 years.
