Belgian nationality


Hie everyone

A few months ago i applied for a B card and i now received a letter from my commune to make appointment for the card and bring 25 euro.If i get this can i also ask for the nationality with this B card or i need another type of card? And also how long do i need to wait before starting process of nationality after getting the card? Thank you in advance for your answers


> can i also ask for the nationality

Well, you don't tell us your current nationality, how long you've been in the country, what you've been doing here over the past 5 or 10 years, what your age or marital status is, so your question simply cannot be answered.

Ask the commune. They will ask you the right questions needed to determine how you should go through the naturalisation process.

If you can be bothered to use the internet properly, the Wikipedia page on Belgian Nationality is usually very good, or at least accurate and up-to-date.

The fact that you're been approved for a B card it logically means that you're non-EU and have also completed 5 years stay in BE. So you have 2 important requirements to qualify but you then need to check if you have other requirements as well for nationality. Lots of details are already there on this forum. You just need to search correctly.

You have been living here continuously for over 5 years and you have been paying social security for over 5 years, therefore you can go down the "declaration of nationality" route. The 5 years working means you meet the language, social end economic integration criteria without needing further proof.

Next step, commune and ask them what documents you need.
