Foreign researcher in Belgium
Belgian law makes the application for residence of a foreign researcher who is a national of a country outside the European Union subject to the single permit procedure.
Strict legal conditions must be met in order to be considered a researcher and to be eligible for a work and residence permit in Belgium.
If you are a foreigner and wish to obtain a residence permit in Belgium as part of a study, research, internship or voluntary service, carefully prepare your file and ask for advice from specialized lawyers in Belgium.
Rules on mobility of researchers inside Europe distinguish between short and long-term mobility (depending on whether it exceeds 180 days).
Foreign researchers, like students, have the possibility to stay in Belgium at the end of their research for a maximum of 12 months in order to look for a job or start a business.
