Question:

I'm an Indian citizen working in Belgium on Belgian VISA. I have work permit till March 2015 but my VISA expired recently. I have also got a Belgian National ID card. Can I travel to India and come back to Belgium in December 2014? Will a Belgian ID card and work permit entitle me to enter Belgium without VISA?

Answer:

"Can I travel to India and come back to Belgium in December 2014?"

If Staying out of Belgium more than 45 days( check the days at the town hall ), you have to report same to the town hall before you leave and get a document permitting requesting 'long term absence from BE'.

"Will a Belgian ID card and work permit entitle me to enter Belgium without VISA?"

Normally yes, subject to having authorisation to stay away from BE for long period from employer / town hall!

Kind regards.
