National Reception Office // The Luxembourg Government
The National Reception Office ("Office national de l'accueil", ONA) is an administration under the authority of the Minister having Asylum in his remits. It is responsible for organising the reception of applicants for international protection and creating and managing accommodation facilities reserved for the temporary accommodation of applicants for international protection, refugees and people eligible for subsidiary protection.
Creation of the National Reception Office
The law of 4 December 2019 establishing the National Reception Office (ONA), places the reception of applicants for international protection under the jurisdiction of the Minister Jean Asselborn, as the Minister for Immigration and Asylum. The jurisdiction with respect to integration will be maintained within the Ministry of Family Affairs, Integration and the Greater Region, under the authority of the Minister Corinne Cahen.
The provisions of the new reception and integration law entered into force on 1 January 2020.
The ONA replaces the Luxembourg Reception and Integration Agency ("Office luxembourgeois de l'accueil et de l'intégration", OLAI) established by the law of 16 December 2008 on the reception and integration of foreigners in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
For any questions related to integration:
