It can be inspiring and varied working in the capital of Europe, but there are also a lot of practical concerns involved. As an expat, KBC Brussels can help you quickly find your feet: from opening a current account to finding a suitable home.
A flourishing expat community
As a centre of economic and political power, Brussels has a lot of foreign employees: from diplomats, journalists, lobbyists and managers to the thousands of people working at the European institutions. As a result, there is a vibrant expat culture in the capital.
It is not always easy for foreign employees to find their way in a new global city. At KBC Brussels, we provide a wide range of services to allow you to quickly adjust to everyday life in the capital of Europe.
All-round practical help
Whether you are coming here with your family or are setting out on your foreign adventure alone, we offer you practical help in building your new life. We will arrange a current account and the bank cards you need, even from abroad. And we are also ready to help with other matters.
Take mobility, for example. It can be a challenge to get around in the busy traffic of Brussels. We will work with you to find a suitable solution that combines car, bicycle and public transport. We offer innovative insurance solutions that respond to modern forms of multi-mobility.
Are you looking for a suitable home in the capital? Our employees know Brussels and are familiar with the local regulations. They will take care of the bank guarantee and the insurance you need for your rental accommodation, or they will help you with credit solutions so you can buy your own home.
