Are you MSF Field Staff?
Please do not book any hotel rooms by yourself! Your Field HR Administrator (FAU) or event/training organiser has taken care of everything. You can find your hotel in the list below.
Are you a visitor (paying for your own accommodation)?
Security Warning !
Although Brussels is generally considered a safe city, please watch out for pickpockets and similar forms of street crime in the same way you would in any other large city.
Common-sense advice: you should bear in mind that the risk is higher in crowded places, such as public transport, railway stations or in the city centre. Avoid as much as possible isolated and poorly lit streets, especially late at night.
It is highly recommended that you keep your identity documents with you in a safe pocket and keep a copy of them in another safe place.
If your passport is in the office for visa purposes, make sure you carry a copy of it at all times and for those concerned, a copy of your Schengen visa as well.
In case you get robbed or assaulted, call immediately the police on 101.
101 - Police
100 - Medical emergency
112 - European emergency number
