On or after March 1 2017, administrative fees for certain residence permits and long-term visa D applications will increase, regardless of whether the application is filed with a Belgian diplomatic post abroad or in Belgium.

The new fees will be as follows:

• Non-EU employees and self-employed individuals filing residence applications on the basis of a work permit or a professional card: EUR 350, up from EUR 215; and
• Family reunification residence applications: EUR 200, up from EUR 160.

Although the legislation has not yet been published, the increase for the administrative payments and effective date of the order have been formally confirmed by the Federal Immigration Office.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

Employers and foreign nationals should consult their immigration professional about the new fees prior to filing a residence permit or visa D application.
