The Flemish, Brussels and Wallonia regions have announced their new minimum salary thresholds for 2022 for work and single permits.
Different thresholds will apply depending on the region and type of employee (such as highly skilled employees, executives,…).
As of 1 January 2022, the following new gross EUR salary amounts will apply.
|Type of permit||Flanders 2021||Flanders 2022||Brussels 2021||Brussels 2022||Wallonia 2021||Wallonia 2022|
|Highly skilled||43.524 (34.819,20 for local employee < 30 or nurse)||45.096|
(36.076,80 for local employee < 30 or nurse)
We explained which salary components should be taken into account for the calculation of the gross EUR wage as mentioned above in a previous blogpost.
Lastly, compliance with these salary thresholds is crucial to continue to guarantee (new) employment in Belgium.
