Belgium tourist visa from India

Belgium is a country known for its chocolates, beer, waffles, and famous football team. Most of us want to visit Belgium, but as an Indian citizen, you cannot get up and visit Belgium. You will need to apply for either a Schengen visa or a Belgium visa for Schengen countries. You should fulfill the Belgium visa requirements. Then apply for the visa and submit the visa application form. Below are different visas you can apply for if you want to visit Belgium.

Belgium Tourist Visa

A Belgium tourist visa is available in two categories. One is the single and multiple entry tourist visa. The other is a single or multiple entry child tourist visa for 6-12 years. These visas have validity for up to three months and a maximum stay in Belgium of ninety days. The processing time for the Belgium tourist visa is usually 7-10 working days. The visa application process is simple if you apply through VisaHQ. Follow the below steps to apply for a Belgium visa:

  • To apply, visit the VisaHQ website.

  • Set "Belgium" and "India" as destination and home country

  • Select the Belgium Schengen visa you want to apply

  • Submit the visa application form after filling it out with your passport number, name, the purpose of stay, etc.

  • Submit the required documents and some additional documents, if applicable, at VisaHQ

  • Pay the visa fee and wait for your visa approval.

Belgium Airport Transit Visa

Applicants from India should apply for a transit visa application if they want a short stay visa in Belgium. However, they should show documents such as:

  • Visa application form

  • Two passport size pictures

  • Original passport with a blank page

  • Proof of final destination

  • Insurance for travel

  • Proof of paid transit visa fee is a complete payment of the fee charged €80 for your transit visa.

  • Check the Schengen visa fees to know if you have to pay additional fees for a visa or have a reduced fee option.

If you are applying for a Schengen visa, the following documents must be submitted at the visa application center. These required documents include the following:

  • Valid passport with blank pages

  • Two passport size pictures

  • A Schengen visa application form

  • Flight Itinerary

  • Bank account statement

  • Travel insurance

  • A Cover Letter

  • Proof of stay in the Schengen state

  • Some additional documents such as:

  1. Marriage certificate

  2. Birth certificate

Applicants Applying for Visa through Belgian Embassy or Consulate General in New Delhi

If you are applying for a Belgium Schengen visa through the Belgian Embassy in New Delhi or the Consulate general, you must complete the entry requirements for the visa application. Then pay the visa fee, which is non refundable at the Embassy of Belgium.

Make sure you have booked an early visa appointment because getting a visa appointment is not easy, which can delay your visa application as too many visa applications are already pending at the Belgian embassy. Even so, if you plan a short stay visa application, it will not cost much. However, if you want a long stay visa, there might be additional fees for the Schengen visa application. The Belgian authorities will handle your visa application and judge if you should be granted the visa or not.

Belgium Visa Requirements for Minors

Minors wanting to enter Belgium through a short stay visa application will need to submit additional documents as follows:

  • Birth certificate

  • Belgium Schengen visa application form signed by parents or family members who are guardian

  • If only one parent has full custody of the kid, then submit a family court order.

  • Certified copies of ID card and passport showing the passport number of both parents

  • A notarized parental authorization allowing applicants to visit the Belgium Schengen area if the minor is traveling alone

  • Note: If you are applying at the embassy of Belgium or consulate general, then one family member or parent should accompany the child

What to Show at Belgium Airport

When you enter Belgium, you might be required to show some documents at the airport. You must show your passport and travel document. However, in some cases, the immigration office might also request your entire duration of stay in the Schengen area, round trip tickets, regular income proofs, employment letter, and other additional documents.

Belgium Schengen Visa Monthly Fee

The Belgium Schengen visa fee and the service fee charged for the visa depend on the type of visa you are applying for. Once you have completed your application and form, you must complete the payment process and pay the visa fee. The visa fees for Belgium are not monthly but a one time, non refundable fee. The fee simple breakdown for a tourist visa is $126 embassy fee, $72 service fee, and $13 GSTIN. This makes a total administrative fee of $211 for both child and adult tourist visas. However, a visa for children under 6 years is free.
