Geraardsbergen. The counters of the Administrative Center of Local Administration Geraardsbergen are again largely operational. On Thursday, the local government was hit by malware, a malicious form of software, which compromised services and had to close counter services. In the meantime, the Population, Driving Licenses and Immigration Departments were able to restart.
Citizens can make an appointment via the website http://geraardsbergen.be of the number 054 43 45 12. You can also drop by during the open hours on Monday and Thursday mornings from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm. The Civil Registry service (eg for making a statement of recognition, requesting a name change, or completing a nationality file) is not yet fully operational. Citizens who need the Civil Registry Service should call in advance on 054 43 45 12.
There is no need to come by for everything. Many matters can be arranged via the digital home counter. The home counter has also remained fully operational in recent days.
