Immigration update: Belgium | New minimum Salary scales

Following the Brussels region, Flanders and Wallonia have released the 2020 minimum salary thresholds for foreign employees.


As in the past, Wallonia has followed suit to Brussels and they both apply the same minimum salary thresholds.

What are the implications?

New applications:

The signed contract with start date on or after 1 January 2020 must indicate the minimum 2020 salary scale.


If the salary slips of the last period proof a salary under or close to the new threshold, the employer must provide proof of a salary raise.

Pending applications:

The ministry is requesting employers' declarations stating that the salary will comply in 2020 with the new minima.

Valid Permits:

It is the obligation of the employer to make sure all criteria, including salary scales, related to the work authorisation are always met. The employer will need to send yearly proof to the ministry.
