Registration at the Migration Office
All international students have to report to the Migration office of the host town upon arrival.
For international staff (on the UGent payroll) the Career Office - Welcome Team will start up the procedure and guide them through the process.
We strongly advise you not to postpone this administrative step. The whole procedure to obtain your residence permit may take a couple of months.
