Residence Formalities

RESIDENCE FORMALITIES

If you want access to the Belgian labor market, social security, reside here or simply move freely about on the Belgian territory, you will need to officially register and thus fulfill a number of formalities. The type of formalities will depend on your civil status, the purpose and the term of your stay, and are taken care of by several Belgian administrations such as the Belgian embassy in your home country, the municipality of your residence in Belgium or the Immigration Office. Take into account that the procedure can be long and complex. Be sure to prepare well in time before arriving in Brussels and … be patient.
