Visa for Belgium

Mandatory form for travel to Belgium

From August 1st, 2020, all persons travelling to Belgium and all persons travelling through Belgium and who are staying at least 48 hours, must fill out an identification form (Passenger Locator Form). You can
find this form here.

Impact of COVID-19 measurements

Due to additional pandemic restrictions enacted by the German government beginning Wednesday, December 16, 2020, our services will work on a reduced base.

For visa applications the delay of treatment will take up to 20 working days. E-mails will be answered within a delay of 10 working days.
We kindly ask you to refrain from calling/sending e-mails in the meantime, as this will inevitably cause longer delays for all applications/e-mails.

Appointments for registering the biometric data and to fetch the visa can be made on Mondays and Wednesdays.
