I am a non-EU citizen and I am living in Belgium via my work visa. I also have a non-Belgian, EU citizen partner that we are living together for 2 years. We both like Belgium and in 2 years I can apply for citizenship so we want to stay in Belgium.

I want to know if I can get a resident and work permit via my partner in Belgium or not? There are many good remote positions that I can easily apply for and the only problem is my current visa is dependent on my job.

  • And what if we get married? We both want to get married but we postponed it because of the pandemic.

This is best answered at your registry office where you and your EU citizen partner are registered. If they recognise your civil partnership, then they will issue you a residence permit as a family member of an EU citizen.

And what if we get married? We both want to get married but we postponed it because of the pandemic.

Then you would definitely get a new residence permit as a family member. But if you both have been registered together (same address) you might be eligible now (depending on Belgium rules for civil partnerships).
