Asylum in Belgium

“All persons asking for asylum undergo the same procedure.” True or false?

False. The procedure for persons from safe third countries such as Albania will get their decision earlier. Belgium gives priority to the treatment of the asylum application and first examines whether to take the application into consideration. In general, international protection is not necessary for citizens of a country included in the list of safe countries. The applicant has to be able to clearly demonstrate that in his personal situation he has a well-founded fear of persecution or a real risk of suffering serious harm. The burden of proof lies more with the applicant. Read more about this here.
