5 years card for detached workers


Hi, No EU citizen. Working for non eu company. But I have been working on site in belgium from last 5 years . I am working on detachment work permit from last years . Normally my Belgian associate company applies for my work permit and residence but it’s always for 12 months and keep in renewing.
What is the process and criteria for 5 years card


After completing 5 years on work permit B (Residence permit A) when you apply for the 6th work permit you should get your Card B (PR card) after which you wont ever need a work permit.

Hi ,

I applied for card D after staying in Belgium from 3 March 2016 . Worked with Indian company till 2017 may and there after local company till date .

My PR got refused saying I detached with my Indian company on may 2020 ( note sure from where they got this information )

What does detachment actually mean as per Belgium authorities ?
Even if I detached in may 2020 ( say suppose ) I full fill more than 5 years . Why can’t they give PR ?

Is there any special rule came in ?
