Whether or not you need a visa to live and work in Belgium depends on the length of your planned stay and your nationality.
Please find all visa information on the website of the International Staff Office.

Health insurance

Anyone living and/or working in Belgium is obliged to register at a health insurance fund for the duration of their stay in Belgium. Without medical insurance, a trip to the doctor can prove to be very expensive.
