"I loved moving to Brussels. But after a while I felt homesick. On InterNations I met a bunch of people from the US. That helped a lot."

Welcome to the InterNations Community of Expats in Belgium!

Goededag, salut and welcome to our expat community in Belgium! By joining InterNations you're instantly put in touch with our thriving expat community in Belgium. If you're in the process of moving or have already decided you're leaving for a new life in Belgium, then our informed network of expats can help you to make that big step a success.

When you join InterNations, you can get in touch with fellow expats in Belgium and ask them anything you need to know. You might have pressing questions like, “where's the best neighborhood for a family to live in Ghent?” or “what are the job opportunities like in Antwerp?” or even “what's the healthcare system like in Belgium?”. It doesn't matter how trivial your questions are, our expat community is happy to help.

Next to Belgium we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of Expat Peru. Or you might be interested in our Expats Portugal community which is also fairly active.

Begin Your New Life as an Expat in Belgium

Famous for its medieval architecture, Trappist beer and as the center of the European Union and NATO, Belgium is not a country of extremes, but of balance. With its mix of French speakers in the south and Dutch speakers in the north, its cities, like Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp, are picturesque and prosperous places to live.

Belgium scored highly in our InterNations Expat Insider survey. Voted as the third-best expat country for education, Belgium also ranked highly in childcare and quality of family life. Many expats move to Belgium for job opportunities, with most having a high level of education, a Master's or PhD for example, before making the move to the country. Belgium is also a great location for traveling Europe, and this can be a factor in expats' relocation and happiness in the country.

The economy in Belgium is based on private enterprise and benefits from its central European location and highly developed transportation network. Belgium's industries are centered around importing raw materials and exporting manufactured products to the rest of the EU.
