Since 18 April 2012, the Brussels Capital Region has been responsible for managing the licences to develop the activity of a travel agency. This subject was previously a matter for the French Community Commission. The transitional period that aimed to adapt the licence files to the new regulations of the Brussels Capital Region has meanwhile passed by. 259 travel agencies hold a licence to develop the activity of a travel agency.
The licensed travel agencies receive a sticker they must apply to the display window of their establishment.
