Foreign volonteer in Belgium
In order to volunteer in Belgium as a foreigner, you need a volunteer permit. The permit must be requested by the volunteer organization as a work permit application.
The European Voluntary Service is just for young people under 30 years old, although Belgian law does not include an age limit. However, it provides that volunteers' stay is limited to 12 months.
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.
Altea can provide you with the services of a lawyer who is an expert in your situation.
