Work permit application
Researcher - maximum 90 days in Belgium
(art. 9,8 royal decree 9 June 1999)
If the duration of the employment in Belgium is maximum 90 days (in case of successive jobs without any interruption, the previous periods are taken into account to calculate the three months), you need to submit the following documents:
If the employer is established in Belgium: Authorisation application to employ a foreign worker during maximum 90 days (in French or in Dutch)
If the employer is established abroad: Authorisation application to employ a foreign worker during maximum 90 days (in French or in Dutch)
- Medical certificate for a foreign worker, in accordance with article 14 of the royal decree dated 9 June 1999 (in French or in Dutch)
- Other required documents
Please note, if the renewal of an authorisation entails total employment of more than 90 days, you must apply for a permit via the single procedure - and not a work permit.
What is the procedure?
The procedure requires a maximum of 90 days between the time the application is complete with Brussels Economy and Employment, and the issuance of the work permit/the notification of refusal.
