Moving to Belgium
Expatriates moving to Belgium will find themselves in one of Europe's most diverse and fascinating countries. Located in the heart of the continent and housing the headquarters of the European Union and NATO in its capital, Brussels, Belgium is a melting pot of influences from other countries, especially when it comes to the arts.
With one of the world’s highest standards of living and a great quality of life, expats moving to Belgium can take full advantage of its housing, healthcare, education and infrastructure. There is a price to pay for all this, however, and the good life here incurs a high cost of living.
Belgium is rich in both cultural history and cultural pleasures. What wine is to France, beer is to Belgium, and with a reputation for gastronomy and the greatest selection of the world’s finest brews, this eclectic nation is warm and welcoming to anyone planning to settle here.
Brussels is the political powerhouse of Europe with its historic Gothic buildings and European Union office blocks, but outside the thriving capital there lies picturesque countryside, the wooded gorges of the Ardennes, and an assortment of undiscovered lazy seaside towns.
Belgium boasts a highly developed and incredibly dense motorway network, which links the country with other European routes and facilitates access to neighbouring countries.
