Single Permit Processing in 2022

Is there any news for the work permit who applied around August from Flanders region?

@caneraydogmusytu

Renewal for me in Flanders.

Submitted August 4, still waiting.

When did you submit?

Did anyone submit a file in the first week of June and receive Annex 46?


Thanks.

@gafarvictoir  I think there is a website where you can track "sort of" the status of the file. You need to login using your ID or using itsme.

This link should work: https://login.socialsecurity.be/idp/use … anguage=en

You choose "Citizen" and login your preferred digital key

@Ralph Bou Ghanem

Thank you for advising.

@eya trabelsi59 hi, I'm in the process of having my employer submit the renewal. Has yours been submitted?

@Aycan Gunal my friend extend his WP in september and got both WP-SP less than a month.

As someone who has applied for several student visas/work permits over the years in different EU member states, I must admit that the processing period in Belgium takes by far the longest time.

The forum has been pretty quiet regarding updates lately. Has anyone received their single permit this month?

Update - Work permit approved for 2 years on 13 October, got the news today. File now with the Office des Étrangers. My work permit renewal allows me to keep working while waiting for the single permit as long as I get an Annex from the commune once my current SP expires.

i filed  my application on 2 August and haven't received anything yet. so disappointing.

@Zoe Run is it a first time application or a renewal?

@Zoe Run sorry for that :/ as I understood from comments, it takes 6-8 weeks for the work permit and 12-16 weeks for the residence permit but was it a renewal or first time application?

@Zoe Run and additionally when did you get the no reply e-mail? They are counting from that time on as I know.

@maharaji1984 hello hope you are doing well. I also see admissable when I track it on the system but I guess it does not mean a work permit.  When did you get the work permit exactly and do you know what does admissable mean?

@Aycan Gunal the first time

the first time.

@Aycan Gunal Hello Aycan, I hope you are doing well, actually you are right they are taking a long time to finish the process, I got my no-reply email on the 31st of August for first time application and they requested additional information regarding full passport pages photos on the 19th of September..

they didn't start yet to process files that were submitted in August. They are still finishing the ones submitted in July...

how did you know that they have not begun to process applications in Aug?

@Zoe Run it was not me who told this. I just asked when did you received your no reply e-mail. Because after having this e mail you can be sure that your documents are sumbitted. And then you can contact your HR to see If the government find all the documents correct and complete. Because sometimes they are asking some additional documents which are missing on the files. These are just my experience I hope it helps.
