Temporary residence permit

  • Do you have your temporary protection certificate and an address in Ghent? Make an appointment with the Migration Counter at the Stadskantoor. Keep in mind: you need 1 appointment per family member, including any children.
  • You will receive a temporary residence permit (annex 15).
  • If you have a permanent address, the police will check if you actually live there.
  • Did you receive a letter with pin and puk codes? Take this letter to Burgerzaken - Afhaalbalie Stadskantoor to collect your residence permit (type A, valid until 4 March 2025). You don't need an appointment to collect your permit.
