Hello! Today I was notified by the police that I have been refused residence in Belgium and have 30 days to leave Belgium. Background: EU citizen, living in Belgium for 5 years, previously working for the EU and currently as job-seeking. I always registered and declared everything as required with the local authorities, police, communes; moreover the EU services assisted me in that.. The decision I received is from Office des Etrangers arguing that I have no real employment chances (strangely enough whatsoever). Can anyone pls advise what I should do? I asked the EU for assistance but can anyone give other tips (for plan B)? I'm not a lawyer but that would be bizzare and conflcts with EU free movement.
Hi We are moving from Belgium shortly and discovered that Belgian removal companies consistently require full payment before international removals. Our experience has previously been that a balance is paid on completion and when possessions are delivered to the new location. With this in mind I would really appreciate some feedback on specific companies based on your personal experiences of moving. Have any readers used Putters, Dockx or Servaes? If so could you let me know how it went? Many thanks

The new AngloINFO Jobs section offers many more features to help you actively find or advertise jobs. Over the next few weeks we’ll phase out jobs from the Classifieds altogether, so we’ve switched off the option to add new ones. We hope that you’ll advertise your job via AngloINFO Jobs so that you can see the results for yourself. I have paid for a Featured Classified in one of the jobs categories. What will happen to my ad? If you have a live Featured Classified in one of the jobs categories, it will still show in whichever category you paid for it to appear in. If your ad is still live when we switch off the jobs classifieds, we’ll migrate you over to the new AngloINFO Jobs section – but don’t worry, we’ll email you in advance to let you know what will happen. If you’d rather move your job ad to the new AngloINFO Jobs section now, just contact us and we’ll be happy to help. What will happen to existing basic job Classifieds? We hope that people with basic job Classifieds will decide to advertise their properties in the new AngloINFO Jobs section so that they can take advantage of the powerful new features. Eventually, existing basic ads will disappear when we switch off the jobs sections of the Classifieds but we’ll email everyone in advance to let them know what to expect.
