Visa for Belgium | Belgium in Cameroon

1. Where, when and how to apply for a visa?

Visa applications

In order to be able to serve you even better, the Embassy is now working with the company VFS. All visa applications for Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway (short stay) and the Netherlands are made with VFS. For more information, please visit their site http://www.vfsglobal.com/belgium/cameroon/index.html.

2. How much is the handling fee (cost of processing a visa application?

  • The handling fee must be paid in cash, in FCFA, to the Embassy.
  •  For a short stay visa (C), the handling fee is the equivalent of 60 euros payable in FCFA. Click here for the table with the current consular fees in euros and FCFA.
  • For a long stay visa (D), the handling fee is the equivalent of 180 euros payable in FCFA. Click here for the table with the current consular fees in euros and FCFA. An additional fee is due for the processing of certain D visa applications. In this case, you will be asked to provide proof of payment of this fee among the documents in your application file. If you do not provide proof of payment of the fee when you submit your request, it will be considered inadmissible.
  • Please note that the handling fee will have to be paid when submitting the visa application. The fact that an applicant is exempted from paying the handling fee does not, however, mean that they are automatically exempted from paying the additional fee.
  • Some exceptions to the standard rates of 60 euros for a C visa and 180 euros for a D visa exist. You can find all the useful information on this subject on the website of the Immigration Office.

3. What documents do I need to provide?
You can download the visa application form and find out about the terms and conditions relating to it on the website of the Foreigners' Office of the SPF Interior, the only body competent in matters of access, stay, establishment and removal of foreigners.

Short stay visa (= 90 days maximum)

Biometrics - Visa Information System (VIS)
All Schengen visa applicants over the age of 12 must come in person for the registration of ten fingerprints and their photo. These data will be kept for five years in the VIS. The fingerprint registration process, which only takes a few minutes, allows you to identify with certainty as the sole visa holder. It protects you from any falsification or misuse of identity (eg in case of theft of your passport) and optimizes border crossing. You can find more detailed information on this on the European Union website.

Long stay visa (more than 90 days)
For any useful information, you can consult the website of the Immigration Office.
The registration of biometric data (fingerprints and photo) is mandatory for any student visa application.
Two categories of students are exempt from registering biometric data:
students who have a Belgian state grant
students participating in an exchange program or making use of inter-university mobility
