More than 3,500 Brits became Belgians since 2016

Ever since talks of Brexit began, many Britons decided to change nationality. The number has grown significantly after the Brexit referendum in June 2016.

According to Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, every month, an average of 90 Britons apply for Belgian nationality.

As of January 2017, there were approximately 23,000 Britons living in Belgium.

British applicants do not need to give up their nationality since Belgium and U.K. accept dual nationality.
