Do I Need a Visa to Visit Belgium?

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports do not require a visa to enter Belgium for tourism or business stays under ninety (90) days.

Most other nationals will need a visa.

Non-Canadians must apply IN PERSON at the Belgian Embassy or Consulate for the European Customs Agreement Zone visa. Visa seekers are advised that they must seek visas directly and in person from the embassy or consulate as they will be interviewed and fingerprinted and biometrically scanned

Non-Canadians must make an appointment directly with the appropriate embassy or consulate and attend the IN PERSON interview and fingerprinting. You must contact the embassy for the appointment. The embassy will tell you which documents to bring to your appointment.

Belgium is a signatory of the European Customs Agreement on border control and visa standardization.
