Belgium long stay permit

Belgium is situated in Western Europe and is a favorite tourist attraction. The country has job opportunities in service and high-tech industries. One can manage a short stay in Belgium with a Schengen visa since Belgium is a party to the Schengen agreement. But for a longer stay the permit requirements vary.

If you are planning on a longer stay in Belgium for more than 90 days, then you will have to submit for a long stay permit. For this you will have to get a registration certificate from your local authorities. Candidates will have to visit the center personally and register their biometrics. Apart from this, your passport should have a validity of 12 months and your application will be accepted only within three months before the date of arrival.
