National strike of March 10 – personal interviews are maintained

On Friday March 10, nationwide strike action was announced. All public transport (SNCB, STIB, TEC and De Lijn) will be affected.

Given the particular context of the asylum crisis and because the SNCB provides a minimum service in the event of strike action, the CGRS has decided not to cancel the personal interviews scheduled for Friday 10 March 2023.

We therefore ask applicants, guardians, support persons and/or lawyers who have been invited for a personal interview on that day to make every effort to come to the CGRS.

If this is not possible, it is important to notify the absence in advance by sending an email to, mentioning the name and file number. The CGRS will then send a new invitation as soon as possible.
