From July 1, the Belgian consulate will no longer issue short-term visas to Russian citizens.
The Belgian Visa Application Center will only accept applications for category D visas:
- Student visa for applicants planning to arrive in Belgium before 31 August.
- Work visa (single entry) for applicants planning to arrive in Belgium before August 31.
- Family reunification visa, only for family members who accompany work visa applicants and plan to arrive in Belgium before August 31.
“Please note that the Visa Application Center will not be able to make any exceptions. This temporary measure will be lifted as soon as the Belgian Embassy restores the ability to process all visa applications without exception”, ATOR quotes representatives of the Belgian Visa Application Center.
