Working for Uber an Belgian ID card.

Question

Does anyone know if a Belgian ID card is required to be a delivery guy with Uber. I don't have one, but I am Irish with a curent/valid Irish passport, and obviously am legally allowed to live and work here.

If you registered with the commune/gemmente where you live as you are required to do by Belgian law, then you can ask them for an E-card.
If you didn't register, then you are living in Belgium illegally and one trusts that Uber would not allow you to work for them.

Hmmm.. .thanks foe not answering the question. And it its illegal not register. I've been in and out if Belgium (where my mother and brother live) for the past 15 years while contracting abroad, and didn't see the point in registering, as when I returned it was to a diffrent address.

Seeing as I'm stuck here for the foreseeable future (COVID I will get an ID, but will be moving to Ottignies in 2 months, so registering now, only to register again somewhere else shortly again seems a waste of time.

Registering now isn't a waste of time - it's a legal obligation.

Off you go now. Once you've registered, your question becomes redundant.

You are absolutely "legally allowed to live and work here" however, if you intend to reside here and do not register, you are here illegally.

Looking at the Ubereats site, the only thing it says is "Avoir une pièce d'identité valable dans l'Union Européenne", so you could always give it a try with your Irish passport.
