Although UK was not the part of Schengen Agreement which was signed way back in 1985, yet British citizens are allowed to travel without a Schengen Visa across Europe for up to 90 days. However, UK’s decision to take an exit from EU may give rise to the Schengen Visa requirements for British citizens, requiring them to apply for a visa in order to visit the Schengen Area.
Visa Documentation plays a crucial role in getting your Belgium Visa approved from the Belgian Embassy/Consulate. Improper & inadequate documentation may lead to Visa Application rejection by the Embassy. Therefore, in order to avoid any hassle or delay in Visa processing, all the prospective applicants are required to meet Belgium Visa requirements.
In case you are residing in UK for employment, as a student or as a spouse of UK National & willing to travel to Belgium for holidaying or business purposes, you would be required to produce & present requisite documents to obtain a Belgium Visa.
Providing mandate documents at the Belgium Visa Centre minimizes the chances of rejection & helps you obtain your Belgium Visa Permit on time.
