Key Points

  • E cards that were issued before May 10, 2021, are being replaced with an EU card.
  • The title and the layout of the cards have been changed.
  • Biometric processing is now required for the EU and EU+ cards.


As Belgium looks to modernize their residence permits, they have changed the E and E+ cards to EU and EU+ cards with new regulations.

Looking Forward

The new changes are part of the effort to reduce fraud and abuse of residence permits in Belgium.
