The Administrative Commission for the Coordination of National Social Security Systems has extended the transitional period for social security until 30 June 2023. This transitional period, which would normally end on 31 December 2022, has the same effects as the COVID-19 measures, meaning that working from home for frontier workers does not affect the applicable social security. In other words, frontier workers may, even after 1 January 2023, still work 25% or more from home without becoming insured in their country of residence. This transition period applies both to frontier workers who have been working from home since the beginning of the corona crisis and to frontier workers who are just starting to work from home.

More information can be found in the Belgian NSSO’s newsletters on the introduction of the transitional period and its extension.
