On Monday 24 March 2014 the City of Brussels began taking fingerprints and digital signatures for the biometric passports and residence permits. The service at the counters can therefore take more time.
The Brusseleir, the info magazine of the City of Brussels, has a special edition with all public and private services and cultural events on the territory of the municipality. It is only available in Dutch and French.
These files can be viewed at the Department of Planning.
As a reminder, on Monday 21 April (Easter Monday), the administrative departments of the City of Brussels will be closed. The next day, and the rest of the week they will be open on the normal hours.
