The Immigration Service recalls that a third-country national who cannot leave Belgium for reasons of force majeure (quarantine, flight cancellation, closure of a border, etc.) can apply for an authorization to extend his stay, based on "short stay". Click for more info...
If all legal conditions are met and the conditions for employing a foreign employee are respected, the employer can apply for employment and work permit B on the basis of the employee's short stay for a period of up to 90 days. This permission will be limited to the validity of the short stay with a maximum of 90 days.
Provided there is a clear motivation for the renewal application or annual audit, we will be flexible with regard to the annual salary scales and take into account the current exceptional situation. Certain supporting documents (R.V.A./O.N.E.M attestation) can be added.
