Belgian Business and Employment Visa Overview
Belgium offers a range of temporary and permanent skilled visas for the purpose of foreign nationals attending to business matters or employment. Workplace laws in Belgium ensure that all employees are provided with basic rights and protection in the workplace. As legislative requirements, processing times and documentary evidence change frequently we encourage you to contact us for the most up-to-date information.
European Union nationals
European Union nationals don’t require work Visa to work in Belgium.
Non EU nationals
Non-EU nationals must have a work VISA in order to be legally entitled to work in the country.
Applications relating to artists, au pairs, specialized technicians and trainees require slightly different processing.
There are two possible ways for the candidate to be employed with a work Visa:
- As the direct employee of a Belgian company.
- As the employee of a foreign company that is providing services to a Belgian company. This foreign company may not be a recruitment agency and must produce a service contract as part of the application. Where this occurs, the application needs to be made in conjunction with a Belgian accountant who must administer the payrolling of the candidate to ensure that all tax and social security is duly paid.
