Belgians who take a second nationality will retain their Belgian citizenship, according to a royal decree which comes into force Saturday.
Until now Belgians who moved abroad and took a foreign nationality for personal or professional reasons automatically lost their Belgian citizenship.
The foundation Flemings in the World is glad at the new decree.
The association said its members abroad will now also be able to vote in Belgian elections and meanwhile work on their career abroad without any restrictions.
