Permanent residence



I will be completing my 5 years of employment in Belgium in May'22. But I would like to take paternal leave/time credit absence for few months from March'22

Is paternal leave/time credit considered as an interruption to 5 years of continuous stay?


I was advised by a lawyer that it might. I would check with someone qualified (e.g. ADDE)

sorry - to clarify - I don't think it changes 5 years of continuous stay but it does possibly change 5 years of continuous employment ( I assume you are applying for nationality?)
