Preliminary remark

This document is based on the texts and interpretations currently available and can be subject to amendments when published in the Belgian Official Gazette

Due to the fact that the different regions in Belgium are competent to also determine the rules for the authorizations to work (for those who mainly come to Belgium to work) including the exemptions, there can be differences between these regions.

Exemptions for obtaining an authorization to work for those who mainly come to Belgium to reside here (but will also work such as students or as a family member of a single permit holder based on work) are determined at a Federal level.
