Single Permit Processing in 2022

@shrikant mete It looks like that's the general response they are giving employers, due to the backlog.

Maybe you can try to have your employer asking for more information on the 4th month Deadline after Sep 10th, hopefully they grant to you soon! wishing you good luck!

Hey, this might help:

The highly skilled worker (see Article 17,1° of the Government of Flanders Order) has a higher education or university diploma or degree, or the equivalent, that is:
1) at least at a Bachelor's or Master's level of education (tertiary education level) that:

lasted for at least three years
or leads to education qualification level 5 (in Dutch).
2) awarded by a higher-education institution that is recognised by the state where the institution is situated. A diploma or certificate from a private educational institution is therefore not valid.

According to this decree, your programme does not qualify for high skilled worker.

Hi there, thanks for the info! Since my degree is equivalent to an HBO5, I was hoping that would fulfill the requirement. I have completed more than two years of schooling as well, just not all at the same institution. I submitted transcripts showing the dates I attended school so I'm crossing my fingers that it will cover the three year requirement. Now to just wait!

Alright, I have an update! A good one, too!

Congratulations, I was wondering if you have applied by yourself or via a 3rd party company for your work permit?

@caneraydogmusytu Hi there, my employer applied for me and they have a lawyer/third party consultant that does it for them.

Hi Alisha :) Same for me. I have received my work permit in 34 days and your timings was similar to me, that's why I wanted to ask.


I'm waiting for my residence permit about 20 days and it is still pending. Hope to get it soon.


Good luck :)

@ccsanchezg have you gotten your residency permit yet?

@Ravi Kiran 1550 I also received my no reply on 17/7! Hopefully we get our residency/single permits backs soon. I got my WP just a couple days before you did.

@AlishaNelson33 hopefully! My company hired consultancy to process. They said it will take +/- 9 -10 for residential permit. Is it the same case for you.

Is there any way that my italian-job-search permit (valid until 31dec2023) can be converted to the Belgian visa? My fresh application in Brussels region has been filed by my employer and I received the no-reply social security email today...

Hello everyone.  I am from Turkey.  It has been 5 months since I received a residence and work permit.  I applied for a single permit visa and submitted my documents (April 27).  Can someone tell me when the visa will be issued?  I looked at their website and it says it will be published within 120 days.  There will be 120 days at the end of this month.  Flemish region Genk.

@augcetoile


Congrats!

Hey all,


Has anyone ever gotten in contact with the Immigration Office via phone?!


I keep calling and it says line busy.


And if i managed to get in contact?! Can they look up and give me an accurate status of my file

Hoping someone can advise as well. My wife and I still have a valid long stay visa D's based on single permit (myself) and family reunification (my wife). Our visas are valid until January 2024 and are multiple entry. Our residence cards expired on July 31 as that is when the first single permit expired. The employer applied for the renewal thereof at the end of April (3 months prior to the expiry thereof) but as shown above, I have only received the work permit thus far and have not received the annex 46 yet. From what I can tell considering the current average of 10 week timeline for annex 46/RP, we will only receive RP end of Octobrt. However we have a wedding in middle of October in Portugal. Will we be able to fly to Portugal in October on the basis of the visa D's alone? Or is this not allowed without the residence cards?


Also does anyone have any advice on how we can follow up and how to do this in a polite way? The employer is pretty passive and always says "it doesnt help to follow up" so it seems like we will have to try to do this ourselves.

@Josefine23 Almost the same timeline, hope will get it soon...


Are you tracking it somewhere or did your employer inform you about it...

Can anyone suggest how exactly track the process. As my employer applied for me through some agency on 18th June and till now they are not able to provide any update.

@SDass2 If you have an eID or itsme you can track via single-permit.prd.pub.socialsecurity.be
