Temporary protection 

The displaced persons from Ukraine who arrived in Belgium can register in Belgium in order to receive temporary protection and, if necesary, accomodation.

Displaced persons can register in Hall 8, on the site of Brussels Expo in Brussels. Persons who fulfil the recognition conditions, immediately receive a temporary protection certificate which entitles them to the delivery of an A-card with a validity of one year, which is issued by the administration of the municipality where the person concerned is residing.

The Immigration Office is the federal body responsible for the registration of displaced persons.

Fedasil takes care of the referral of people, if they so wish, to a temporary accommodation that is provided in the Belgian municipalities. The municipalities are responsible for the provision and coordination of temporary accommodation, including accommodation provided by private persons.
