Single Permit Processing in 2022

has anyone applied for renewal of single permit IN Brussels region?

@Tourist01

My employer informed me of this. I am not sure if we can track it somehow or not.

Hope you will get it soon!

@Aycan Gunal

thank you very much will check

@Josefine23, did you (or anyone else for that matter) not receive any email? I was under the impression that the employer and the employee, both would receive an email once the single permit is granted

@gedojej426

Not in my experience, I only received the initial no-reply email. Everything later is informed by my employer. And in Annexe 46 it is mentioned they won't inform the employee anymore but ask the employer to do so.

@Josefine23

Ok I see. Would you also know if the employer receives an email/letter or do they need to login and check? I ask because the HR rep I've been talking to is on a leave currently and looking at the other people's timelines, my single permit should be arriving some time this week

They can certainly log in and check, not sure if they will receive an email automatically or not (I think most likely yes, but not a physical letter).

@LL-1


What you can do is, go to commune and ask for annex 49. Annex 49 will allow you to start work.


Annex 49 is valid for 45 days and can be renewed only once.

I keep emailing to my employer every 2 week since 3rd week of august and asked them to call the immigration department to ask for my single permit status. the long awaited single permit finally has been granted today.

good luck to others.

@syieda happy for you :) when did they ask you for additional documents?

@Jk27 thank you..they asked today at 11.48am. I received an email from my employer saying that the immigration department asked for the additional document. then within an hour I received the completed single permit and annex 46 document.

I don't really understand what you mean by confirmation

@syieda


Hi. Congratulations for a successful end of such long journey with beaurucracy. 😁


Can i ask, when you submitted the criminal record, was it for your mainland or only the EU country?


Also did they ask for a scanned copy of the pages with entry and exit stamps in the passport?


Thanks in advance. I await your response.

@mohanealabib I only submitted criminal record for the country I reside at the moment. they didnt ask criminal record from my home country.


for the passport, I only submitted the 2 front pages which included my signature.

@syieda

Thanks

Congratulations! 7 weeks from WP to RP isn't too bad from what I've been seeing. Hoping things start speeding up as the Belgian summer vacation ends.

Yes exactly 7 weeks but they told me that it will take 6 to 8 weeks after WP

@LL-1


With annex 49, can we work full-time (35-40 hours) or can we only work 20 hrs?


Thanks

@Tourist01

With Annexe 49, we can only work on the specific function that is approved in the single permit. Can be full time,

@Jk27, finally yesterday I received my single permit.

Congratulations, when did you receive your work permit?


    @Jk27, finally yesterday I received my single permit.
