How long to get D card in Belgium
In September 2019 it will be 6 years since started living in Belgium and 3 and half years since I started working.
I spent the first 2 years studying. I started working after that after a wait for work permit and short job search. I'd like to apply for the D card and subsequently apply for the nationality. I am not from the EU.
I'd like to know if I can apply for the D card already a month and half before completing the official 5 years of residence (considering 2 years counts as one while studying). And how long would I have to wait to get it? Would I be able to apply for the nationality immediately after?
And by the way, when I read through websites and forums I see that to apply for nationality one needs to have resided in the country for 5 or 10 years. When does this 10 years apply?
Thanks in advance.
