Interrupted period but not dismissed from the national register
I have a question about premanent residency in Belgium. I have been living in belgium for more than five years. I came to Belgium as a research scientist with a visa issued from the embassy of Belgium in Italy. However there was an interruption in my residency for about 10 months however I was having an address while waiting for my professional card ( work permit (self-employed) to be issued by the economic and work department. It took longer than I expected and then I went out of EU for the mentioned period and came back with a visa after I got my professional card issued.
I email the commune and one told me you can apply for D card since you were not dismissed from the national register and another one told me you can't apply.
1. If approach again the commune, can I request to apply for either the D card or the B card ?
2. Does the interruption mean in interruption between the A cards issuance?
