Moving to Belgium? Here are some essential steps to take

19:42 07/03/2018

If you are planning a move to Brussels – or anywhere in Belgium – you can set up your bank account before you even get here. BNP Paribas Fortis Bank has developed a range of services specifically tailored to expats.

Perhaps most conveniently, you can open an account online and have a bank card ready and waiting for you on the day you arrive. But BNP can also help you secure a rental contract ahead of time, so you’ve got a roof over your head.

The bank’s expat Premium Pack offers free services for a year, a MasterCard Gold and international transfers at preferential rates. And if you’re 28 or younger, there’s a special card for you: Hello4You sets you up with a free account, a special prepaid card and a Visa free of charge in the first year.

Find out all about BNP services and get in touch here.
