Humanitarian visa in Belgium (Myria)

Myria, the Belgian Federal Migration Centre, today published a paper on humanitarian visa issued by the Belgian authorities in 2016.

In 2016 almost 1200 humanitarian visa were issued by the Belgian authorities, most of them to Syrians. But what do we know about these visa and the profiles of the people who received one?

Myria, the Belgian Federal Migration Centre, analyzed the existing material, the visa database of the Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs and conducted a number of interviews with stakeholders. The paper aims to shed some light on an issue that is little known about.

The research paper is available in French and Dutch. More information and the press release can also be found on the website of Myria in French and Dutch.
