Belgium will require an integration commitment to achieve non-EU residence
5 July, 2016duguech
Citizens of non-EU countries who intend to stay in Belgium for more than three months must sign an integration commitment. This measure has already been approved by the Federal Government and will take effect during the second half of 2016.
Theo Francken, secretary general of the Belgian State who drafted the document, warns about the need for an adaptation effort, from both the refugees and regular immigrant, to adopt local cultural and social traits as well as learning the language and the intention of finding a job. The requirement specific terms will be announced once the implementation date approaches.
Germany announced a similar request a few days ago for integration commitment for refugees who want to qualify for a residence permit.
