Immi, the webtool for professional immigration to Belgium

We love our country and our country loves bureaucracy. Especially when it comes to immigration. Therefore, we introduced Immi, our digital immigration consultant. This chatbot will present you with a short series of questions and in a few clicks, you’ll know which documents you need to work and reside in Belgium. Immi will tell you if you need to apply for a Single Permit, Work Permit, EU Blue Card or any other document.


This is a free simulation tool to give you a first advice based on your answers. If you need further assistance with the immigration process, we get in touch and see if we can help you with our immigration or relocation services.

Belgian immigration services

Single Permit or EU Blue Card application
Immigration Belgium will organize the Single Permit or EU Blue Card application, acting as a proxy holder for your company. We will inform the international employee once the permit has been granted and guide him/her through the process of obtaining the visa at the local Belgian embassy.
Single Permit or EU Blue Card renewal
We will inform the HR department when the Single Permit or EU Blue Card needs to be renewed on a (3-)yearly basis or earlier. Once approved, we will organize the renewal and coordinate the collection of the new permit.
Visa application for family members
The Single Permit holder’s family members need to follow a different procedure than the international employee itself to apply for a visa D. They need to apply at their local Belgian embassy in person. As we cannot act as a proxy holder for a visa application, we will guide them through the process and provide them with information regarding the documents they will need to provide.
Belgian Residence Permit application
Once the international employee is settled into his/her home, we need to announce the arrival at the local city hall. Immigration Belgium provides a detailed list of the documents the employee needs to provide and sets up the appointments with the local commune. We accompany the employee to the town hall and follow up until we have a copy of the Belgian residence card.
Belgian Residence Permit renewal
Once the Single Permit renewal is approved, we can apply for a new residence card for the international employee and his/her family. Immigration Belgium provides a detailed list of the documents the family members need to provide and sets up an appointment with the local commune. We accompany the visits to the town hall and follow up until we have a copy of the Belgian residence card.
Work Permit application
Our immigration specialist takes care of the application of the Work Permit, acting as a proxy holder for your company. Once the permit is granted, we pick it up and send it to the employee. After obtaining the Work Permit, the employee needs to apply for a visa in his home country. Immigration Belgium guides him/her through the process.
Legalization of documents
We assist the international employee with the legalization of the Belgian documents.

When the Belgian employment has ended, we take the necessary steps to inform the authorities.

We will inform you and guide you through the process.
