Supporting documents for a Single Permit Application
Since 03/01/2019, non-EU nationals who wish to stay and work in Belgium for more than 90 days must submit one single application to the competent region in Belgium through their employer in Belgium. If this request is accepted, a Single Permit is issued, allowing the non-EU national to stay more than 90 days in Belgium to work. For more information, go to the website of the competent and relevant region:
Brussels Capital: http://werk-economie-emploi.brussels
German-speaking community: http://www.dglive.be
- The Single Permit (combined work and stay permit) should be applied for by your employer in Belgium to the regional employment office in Belgium.
- The positive decision on both work and stay authorization (single permit approval ‘Annex 46’) is notified by the Immigration Office to the employer/employee, and the Belgian Embassy where the employee officially resides.
Please note that the documents below are requested when applying for the Single Permit with the competent Belgian regional government, NOT when applying for the D Visa at the Embassy. Also, note that all expenses made to obtain these documents are supported by the applicant.
