About Expat Centre Limburg

Expat Centre Limburg (ECL) is the welcome desk for internationals such as expats and other highly skilled foreign talents living and working in the Belgian province of Limburg.

At Expat Centre Limburg, we help and inform expats and their families so they can easily settle into their new living and working environment. As an international you can request information about your region and find out about events that are organised especially for the international community.
