About those 475 hours What are these 475 hours? Am I obliged to use my 475 hours? Can I only work as a student in the summer? Can I work more than 475 hours? I am only studying in Belgium temporarily. Do I receive 475 hours, too? I don't study or live in Belgium but in one of the neighbouring countries. Do I receive 475 hours, too? Paying lower social contributions? Is that even legal? Will I get another 475 hours next year? I am working in the hotel and catering industry (horeca). Can I combine my 475 hours with my 50 horeca days?
