Professional Card (Information Technology Sector)


Any Non-Europeans/Indians out here who have an experience of applying for / hold a Professional Card and work in IT (Information Technology) sector?

I would like to get some information on how to apply for one, process behind it, tax conditions, social security, impact on residence permit, advantage/disadvantage of a professional card.

My background: I am an IT consultant from India, I have been living and working in Brussels for 5 years now. I am looking forward to settle in this beautiful country and I am currently looking for a suitable job matching my skills, but not all companies are ready to sponsor my work permit. Hence, I am looking to get a professional card (else I will have to stay as a dependent - which I do not want :( )

Any help/information will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
