Permanent Residence (Card type B)

Hi,
I completed my five years of residence in Belgium, not sure if the five years is completed for My residence card. I came in June,2013 and I have applied my B card in July,2019.
Can there be any problem if B card is applied some time  before the residence card 5 years ? May be 5 years through card get completed next month or so.

Thanks !

For your information, the date counted to 5 year is the issue date of your first residence card, not the date you entered the country.

Commune accepted my application, didn't know about this rule. Came across it while going through a thread on this site.

When ministry processes your application, if the date criteria is met, you are good.

I don't want to discourage you but the staffs at commune are always knowledgable about the rules.

My first application was accepted by the commune and rejected by the federal authority due to 1.5 month short to meet 5 years.

Good luck!

After that, were you able to reapply ?

Yes, I reapplied B card right after receiving A one (by default when first application rejected)
