I am a non-EU person who has been working in Belgium for last 2 yrs. I recently got my 3rd WP renewed which is valid from 2009 - 2010.
When I went to the commune for extending my residence permit, which they normally do for 1 yr based on WP. This time, they gave me a letter from ministry about "sejour illimité".
And gave me a paper (for electronic card) to sign where the validty period mentioned was 5 yrs.
The treatment in commune was also different..they wanted me to talk in French / dutch and not in English.
Can you please tell me what this "sejour illimité" mean ? What are implications ? Is my 3rd WP still valid (2009 - 2010) ?
I seriously don't know the consequences of this. Can somebody advise please ?
