Requisitos de visa

Visa requirements are mainly determined by 3 factors:

  • How long the person will be staying in Belgium (more or less than 90 days)
  • The applicant’s nationality, EEA or non-EEA
  • The purpose of the stay (studying, working, family reunion, etc.)

Depending on the applicant’s profile, some formalities may have to be performed in the country of origin (visa) and a number of administrative steps will have to be taken once in Belgium (ID card).

Brussels consists of 19 different communes which all have their own Mayor, city council, and local administration offices. Depending on where people will be living, procedures and required documents will vary. Bringing along copies of all documents submitted for the visa procedure is recommended.
