Seconded - more than 90 days in Belgium

(art. 9,12 and 9,13 royal decree 9 June 1999)

If the duration of the employment in Belgium exceeds 90 days (in case of successive jobs without any interruption, the previous periods are taken into account to calculate the 90 days), you need to submit the following documents:

  1. Form
     Authorisation application to employ a foreign worker for more than 90 days - Employer abroad - Single permit (in French or in Dutch)
  2. Medical certificate of the Immigration Office for a foreign worker
  3. Other required documents

What is the procedure?

The employer completes an application for a work permit to employ a worker under the single permit scheme. He forwards it to Brussels Economy and Employment. If the application is acceptable and admissible: Brussels Economy and Employment examines the application with regard to the conditions of employment. A) If Brussels Economy and Employment refuses the request: Brussels Economy and Employment notifies its decision to the employer and, if applicable, to the worker who is legally resident in Belgium.

The procedure takes four months at most from the moment Brussels Economy and Employment has the complete file until the single permit is delivered / the rejection is notified.
