The Single Permit is the standard route for a foreign national in Belgium working for one employer for more than 90 days in a managerial/executive position, or as highly-qualified staff, either on a local contract or on assignment. For executives, the minimum salary requirement is substantially higher, but a university degree is not required.
The Van der Elst (Assignment from Within the EEA) process is for non-EEA/EFTA nationals hired within the EEA and sent on assignment to Belgium. A work permit is not required, but a residence permit is required for stays over three months.
EU/EEA/Swiss nationals on assignment to or employed in Belgium do not require a work permit. However, a local address registration should be carried out within ten days of arrival and an EU/EEA/Swiss residence card applied for if staying for longer than 90 days following that.
