As a non-EU citizen you need to hold a work permit to be able to work in Belgium. In this interactive workshop we will discuss this topic in a group of jobseekers.

What to expect from this workshop

We will share experiences in the group and will include topics like: the work visa eligibility criteria for non-EU citizens and go through the application procedure. But more importantly, we will discuss questions that are hard to find answers online, such as what happens to your residency if you switch jobs in Belgium as non-EU or interrupt your work contract. Which employers are more open to help you get a Visa? What profile should you have as a jobseeker? Etc..

We have recent information from the Gent Cityhall Migration Office that will be shared during the workshop.There will also be an ambassador from In-Gent vzw who has been through the process of work permit in Belgium and will share their story with you.

We're looking forward to get to know you :-)

Every time a participant does not show up, we have an empty chair at our table that could have been filled by somebody else who wanted to be there. So don't forget to delete your participation if you can't make it or contact Annelies at

We only send tips or reports to participants who show up.

This workshop is open for all jobseekers and working people who want to learn and discuss. You are welcome regardless of your age, sector, gender, education level, etc.

Workshops and conversation groups are prepared and guided by Co-Searching volunteers. Our volunteers are jobseekers or working.
