Language skills for citizenship
I'm looking at hedging my bets and applying for Belgian citizenship.
I have an E card and going with UK Govt. advice to apply for a D card, having 8yrs residence, pay Belgian tax ( not sure why - but it's peanuts) and would qualify for a Belgian pension (€70 a year)
Citizenship requirements want a fluency of one of the 3 languages. Now that's a non starter - I can't remember the right English words!!
I've just discovered on https://www.quora.com/How-much-is-needed-to-obtain-Belgian-citizenship "If you are handicapped or over 65 years old, you don’t have to provide evidence of knowledge of at least one language, and you also don’t have to participate economically. Having lived legally in Belgium for 5 years is sufficient."
And there might be my getout! I'm over 65yrs.
Can anyone (who would qualify as an absolute star!) find the official document that verifies this statement?
