The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Belgium

Are you an expat working and living in Belgium? Or are you preparing to move soon to Brussels, Leuven or any other of the Belgian international hotspots?

Expat life in Belgium has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the French-influenced provinces of the Walloon Region, learning how Belgian people celebrate Dynasty Day, up to tasting Belgium’s favorite dishes such as pommes frites.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Belgium. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in New Zealand to living in USA.

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.
