The Belgian Reception Act passed 12 January 2007 provides a legal framework for the reception of asylum seekers throughout the duration of the asylum process. Fedasil, the Federal Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers, provides accommodations depending on their needs. Caritas specializes in the reception of “vulnerable” asylum seekers: single women with or without children, as well as those in need of medical care. These asylum seekers live in individual adapted accommodations and are supported by our team. Caritas also manages a reception center for families and individuals.
All asylum seekers have the right to reception
