Passport & Visa
Belgium is a member of the European Union and belongs to the Schengen Area.
Before leaving their country, every traveler (except for those exempt from visa requirement) should submit the application vista with the Belgian representation (Diplomatic or Consular Office) that covers his/her country of residence.
If an entry visa is required, please allow sufficient time for this procedure: submit your visa application by presenting yourself in person, at earliest three months before the planned start of your journey, in order to avoid any inconvenience and unnecessary costs.
The process may take longer in certain countries as well, so we strongly recommend that you contact the nearest Belgian Diplomatic or Consular Offices to determine your personal case.
People in possession of a valid residence permit or a valid long-term visa issued by another Member State should check the validity of their visa in order to avoid any inconvenience.
For more information, please visit the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs: http://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/
