    Minimum amount of stable, regular and sufficient income raised again from July 1, 2018 for procedures of family reunification

    In many family reunification procedures, the proof of stable, regular and sufficient income needs to be added to meet their own needs and those of their family members in order to prevent them to fall back on social support.

    The income must be at least equal to 120% of the amount referred to in Article 14, § 1, 3 ° of the Law of 26 May 2002 on the right to social integration.

    The amounts of the monthly allowance were re-raised as of 1 July 2018 as a result of the decision of the Council of Ministers of 30 March 2018 to increase the social benefits for the target groups with a high risk of poverty. The monthly allowance for a person living with a dependent familymember is from 1 July 2018 1.230,27 euro.

    As of July 1, 2018, therefore, in many procedures of family reunification one should show that stable, regular and sufficient subsistence resources are available for a minimum of 1,476,32 euros per month.
