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 and people eligible for subsidiary protection.
Support to communes
Communes are an indispensable partner for the State and play an essential role in the reception of applicants for international protection (AIPs) and beneficiaries of international protection (BIPs) in society.
The government has implemented a series of measures to support communes in their efforts in terms of the reception and integration of AIPs and BIPs.
The law of 4 December 2019 establishing the National Reception Office (ONA) places the reception of applicants for international protection (AIPs) under the jurisdiction of the Minister Jean Asselborn, as the Minister of Immigration and Asylum.
