Luxembourg – Reorganisation of ministerial competences
The law of 4 December 2019 of Luxembourg has created the National Office of Reception (ONA), which will fall under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration. The ONA is responsible for the reception and housing of asylum seekers.
These competences were, until end of 2019, under the Ministry of Family and Integration. This ministry continues working on integration policies through a new Integration department, also created by the new law.
The law was published in the official journal on 28 December 2019 and entered in force on 1 January 2020.
