Visa Rules

A Schengen visa has to be obtained from the Embassy of the country where the MAIN PURPOSE OF TRAVEL lies. Therefore, please check your travel plans before making your application.

In case of travel to multiple Schengen countries, please make your application to the Embassy where you will be staying for the maximum number of days, or from the Point of First Entry into the Schengen Countries, if the duration of stay is the same in more than one Schengen Country.

If you plan to apply for your Schengen visa at the Embassy of Belgium in Nigeria, your main destination and the maximum period of stay in the Schengen States must be in Belgium or Luxemburg only. Please provide proof to support this information.

The Belgium Visa Application Centre will accept your application but we do not assure you of a visa as the decision to issue a visa and duration that it is issued for is made by Embassy of Belgium in Abuja only.
