Request to be registered in the Register for Foreigners
If you are registered in the register of foreigners of a Brussels municipality, the municipality in question will examine whether or not you must follow an integration programme.
Investigation by the municipality
They will check whether you belong to the target group on the basis of three legal conditions and whether you may qualify for an exemption according to the national register.
Issue of information brochure and certificate of obligation
If it is determined that you are required to do so, the municipality will issue an information brochure and a certificate of obligation to follow an integration programme for newcomers in Brussels.
You must provide the municipality in which you reside with the certificates of registration and programme completion. This can be done through BON or the BAPA, in person at the municipality offices or by email. Your municipality’s e-mail address can be found on the certificate of obligation.
