Working and living in Belgium – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Belgium requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Belgian expat life. Living abroad in Belgium raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Belgium?ʺ, ʺShould I study French or rather Dutch -- or even both?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Brussels should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Belgian municipality in Antwerp?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Belgium is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Belgium aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Belgium. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from expat institutions and clubs, to sports & leisure or local organisations and companies, up to travel & accommodation. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺCan anyone recommend their favourite brasserie?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

Interested in expat life around the world, though? We have additional information on dozens of countries and cities, from live in Egypt to living in Argentina!
