After Brexit, UK citizens wishing to move from the UK to Belgium no longer enjoy the privilege of relocating under the Freedom of Movement Act. Consequently, the process of moving to Belgium has become more complex. UK individuals now require a visa for prolonged stays in Belgium, and it is crucial to thoroughly research and choose the most appropriate visa type based on your specific needs. Before making the move to Belgium, ensure thorough preparation to be fully ready before arriving on Belgian soil.
For those seeking long-term residency in Belgium from non-EU countries, the D visa is the most applicable option. This long-stay visa allows holders to reside in the country for a duration of three to six months, providing them with the opportunity to apply for a residence permit. The specific visa requirements can vary depending on individual circumstances but may encompass:
Household goods can be imported duty-free within one year following the official change of residence. In cases where all documents are unavailable, a guarantee (bond) must be paid, totalling 10% customs duties, 21% VAT, as well as an eventual disciplinary penalty. The complete guarantee amount, if applicable, is reimbursed within six months upon submission of the original certificate of residence or any other outstanding documents.
Belgium no longer allows duty-free entry for secondary residences.
