Below is a list of documents which are ESSENTIAL for entering Belgium, enrolling at ULg and getting settled in Belgium:
your national identity card or your passport if this document is required for entry into Belgium (with your official address mentioned on it or, if this isn't possible, bring any official documents showing your address in your country; this can make it easier to open a bank account if you are from a country outside the EU);
your letter of admission to the ULg;
the original of your education or employment certifications (including start and end dates) for the past five years prior to your arrival in Belgium;
your grant contract, guarantee certificate or original document stating who is financially responsible for you signed by the guarantor (if delivery of your visa is subject to this condition). Warning! Make sure that the words "solvabilité suffisante" (sufficient solvency) are stamped by the Belgian Embassy or Consulate on the financial responsibility document (otherwise your Belgian residence permit will be refused).
a recent family composition document (official document issued by a local authority - such as the town hall for example - specifying the name of all people living at the same address and in the same household as you); this document should be accompanied by a translation if it is not drafted in French, Dutch, Spanish or English and will be required for all requests for registration loans or a reduction in registration fees;
a certificate of income and taxation for the individual(s) who was (were) financially responsible for you throughout 2010. This document should be officially issued by the Finance Minister in your country; it should be accompanied by a translation if it is not drafted in French, Dutch, Spanish, or English and will be required for any requests for registration loans or a reduction in registration fees;
a medical certificate required for obtaining a visa and stating that you do not carry any diseases which are a public health concern; you will be asked for this during registration at the ULg;
health insurance in your own country (for example, the European Health Insurance Card for EU students or insurance required by the Belgian Embassy to issue your visa). A health care insurance policy may, however be taken out after you have arrived in Belgium;
any documents required by the Embassy orby the BelgianConsulate for delivery of the visa and not mentioned above;
you take out repatriation insurance in your own country;
you bring the International Non-proprietary Name (INN) of any medication you are taking, specifying the chemical composition of your medication (this will make it easier for you to find similar medication in Belgium).
luggage: always keep your luggage in sight and keep your travel documents, passport and money on your person, especially in train stations and on public transport;
money: be careful when taking out cash. If you are not able to get hold of euros before your departure, exchange money at the airport. Your initial expenses (transport, accommodation, registration, living costs) will have to be paid before you can open a bank account, as this procedure may take several weeks.
