Belgium

Belgium, one of the important economies of Europe provides a medium for obtaining residence permits to investors and self employed individuals who can then apply for citizenship after five years of residence. Most of the applications are made for a long stay visa in the country if there is no claim based on citizenship for the individual.

The application for the long stay visa is based primarily on investment or on the basis of employment in Belgium. For the first three years, the resident permits are obtained on a yearly basis, but after the expiry of three years, they can be made for a longer duration. As a member of the European Union, a Belgian Residence permit enables the individual to travel throughout the European Union.

A Belgian resident permit holder can apply for citizenship under most circumstances after five years. We at Empire  can offer personalised guidance for all the steps of obtaining a Belgian Permanent Resident Permit starting with the process of compilation of documents and preparation of application to obtaining the permit.
