At the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis, many people who do not have Belgian nationality, but a residence permit in Belgium or people with two nationalities were stuck abroad without the possibility of reaching their country of residence. The Belgian state considers that this person, although he has stayed in Morocco for a whole year for reasons independent of his will, has violated the rules relating to his residence permit and can therefore no longer claim it. Once again we are witnessing an unacceptable situation linked to an absurd and inhumane migration policy!
