This external event is organised by our partner the Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC).

Whether you have settled as an expat in Belgium or are still living in China and planning your upcoming foreign assignment, or whether you are a Belgian company employing Chinese professionals, it’s important to keep in mind the latest immigration regulations for employment of foreigners in Belgium.

Work permit vs single permit? Short stay vs long stay? How about the rules for self-employed professionals, Digitalisation of immigration formalities (Single Permit, Schengen visa, the ETIAS system,…)?

Join us for a review of the current migration paths for employees and self-employed professionals into Belgium during the BCECC’s webinar “Working in Belgium as a Chinese professional – Rundown on Immigration framework” on June 21, 2023 at 11:00 CET (17:00 CST) and learn all you need to know about important legislative developments and practical tips for common exemptions for employees and self-employed professionals.
