Visa for Belgium

 

Mandatory form for travel to Belgium

From August, 1st, all persons returning to Belgium and all persons travelling through Belgium and who are staying at least 48 hours must fill out an identification form (Passenger Locator Form). You can find this form here.

 

The Embassy in Baku does not issue visa. Do not send us requests concerning visa. We can't help you. You will find below an overview of the appropriate authorities to whom you may address your visa applications and questions.

 

The only exceptions to this rule are two elements pertaining to student visa applications: the Embassy of Belgium in Baku can (1) confirm medical certificates and (2) legalize signatures on so-called 'Commitments that charge will be taken' (also called Annex 32). You will find all information regarding the Annex 32 on this website. Unless you have further questions about these specific procedures, do not contact the Embassy of Belgium in Baku, but send your questions directly to the appropriate authorities listed below.
