You will be working in Belgium temporarily
If you work in Belgium temporarily for your Dutch employer, you can easily arrange to stay covered under Dutch social insurance. You will then also continue to be insured under the Dutch Health Insurance Act (Zvw).
Arranging your social insurance
If you will be working in Belgium temporarily, you should arrange your social insurance as follows:
- Ask your employer to obtain an E101 certificate from our International Secondment Department. With this form, you can prove that you are covered under Dutch social insurance and that you do not have to pay contributions in Belgium.
- You should then request a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from your health insurer. With this card, you can get reimbursement for medical care in Belgium.
If you are in Belgium for more than 183 days a year to work, you will start paying tax in Belgium as from the day you start working in Belgium.
