Visa for Belgium
Current Covid restrictions and Visa applications
Although the Embassy is open for business (strictly on appointment only) and the Consular Section is serving the public, one should understand that, with limited numbers of staff present on-site and important volumes of incoming applications, delays should be expected. We are doing the best we can to serve everyone as soon as possible, while also caring for the health and safety of our team members and visitors.
Unfortunately the Embassy only disposes of an extremely small waiting room. As a result the few available appointment slots in the visa section of the Embassy are restricted to humanitarian cases.
We can only strongly advice to make use of our brand new state of the art and comfortable (with a VIP section) Visa Application Center in London.
