After Submission

If you have already submitted an application for a visa at the visa application centre you can track your application here.

You can track your application by entering your Reference Number and your Date of Birth.

Please be informed that due to the Schengen consultation process, the visa processing time is a minimum of 15 working days which begins after an applicant had taken biometrics at VFS Global.

Please note that VFS Global work is primarily administrative in nature; we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Belgium Embassy.

The visa application number will be visible on the Visa-On-Web online form as soon as the application has been created at the Consulate (one working day following the deposit of the application with the service provider).

The applicant can give you that number which he can find at the very beginning of the form, under the heading "Basic Information" in the field "Visa application number" which is made up as follows: BELXXXX (= code of the Consulate) + 0 ... 0 (filling zeros) + 5 or 6 digits constituting the official visa application number.

For example, for the number "BEL01000000000000000000000111592", this is the application file number "111592".

You need to mention this visa application reference number in every correspondence with the Embassy, without this reference number your question cannot be answered.
