About

Family reunification is a basic right: people who have been awarded a residence permit in Belgium can be reunified with their child(ren) and/or partner who are living abroad. Caritas International and its partner in that area, the CAW Brabantia social service, aim to reunify families as quickly as possible by assisting and advising them in often complex, time-consuming and expensive procedures.
