Living in Europe, Working in EuropeEntry conditions/visasBelgium



The administrative formalities to be completed in order to enter, stay and work in Belgium depend on your nationality and the duration of your stay.


As a citizen of an EEA country, you do not need a visa in order to enter Belgium. However, if the duration of your stay exceeds 3 months, you will need to apply for a residence permit at the town hall of your municipality of residence.


Please note that the Single Permit Directive2011/98/EU has been implemented in Belgium since January 2019. Residence and work permits must be asked through a single step. See the section on Work Permit for more information.



For further information, please do not hesitate to contact the nearest EURAXESS Service Centre.
