Citizens of the European Union and the EEA planning to stay longer than three months in Iceland, need a residence permit. EU and EEA citizens do not need a special work permit, only a residence permit, when coming to Iceland. In Belgium you need both permits before you can apply for a visa
You have to apply for (kennitala), an Icelandic ID number. This ID number is necessary for various practical matters such as opening a bank account, getting a tax card, etc. In Belgium you have to bring a national passport ID which is still valid for the upcoming 12 months to get a visa.
European students must bring a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with them. The EHIC card proves that you are entitled to health insurance at home. If you have to see a doctor, you must present the EHIC and your passport When visiting a doctor, you are advised to bring your insurance card, a valid passport and your ID number (kennitala). In order to pay the lower amount, you have to visit your local Health Care Clinic.
In Belgium you need to get a certificate of good health before you get permission to stay. You must receive this certificate by a doctor who is officially registered by the Belgian Embassy or Consul. You don´t need to go to this doctor if you have a legal labourcard which you can show upon arrival
European Employment Services(EURES) EURES is a cooperation of the job and dissemination of work between the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) and is run by Board EEA. EURES aims to facilitate workers to move between the EEA countries and thus contribute to the balance between supply and demand within the region. In Belgium you still need a legal labour card which you get from your employer before going out working.

The annual registration fee for the University is about € 560 (= ISK 84000)
