Public and School Holidays in 2022

2022, welcome! A new year means a new chapter, fresh start and infinite possibilities! As team Expat Centre Limburg want to thank all our wonderful community members for being a part of the YouRegional International Community!

Public Holidays

As many businesses, organisations and shops in Belgium typically close on official public holidays, it is important to note them in your diary. The Belgian law prohibits working during public holidays, although exceptions exist. In such a case, an employee should for example be rewarded a compensation day. When a holiday falls on a Thursday or Tuesday, some companies close on the Friday or Monday to ‘make the bridge’ (“de brug maken” in Dutch), so that employees have an extra-long weekend
