Visa for Belgium
Mandatory form for travel to Belgium
All persons travelling 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.
NEWS. Ban on non-essential travel extended.
In order to limit the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) the Belgian authorities have decided to introduce a ban on travel for non-essential purposes (recreational, tourism, etc.) to and from Belgium. This ban is in place until 1 April at least. As a consequence we cannot accept visa applications, or issue visas for working holidays and retirement.
For a complete list of essential travel for residents of Australia and New Zealand please see section 2.1 of the International travels information on:
Residents of any other country, for example Fiji, need to refer to section 2.2 of the above link.
IMPORTANT NOTICE :
Please check the official travel advice by the Australian and New Zealand governments since you are required to request and gain permission to leave Australia.
Both Australia and New Zealand have very strict conditions that have to be met for (re-)entry into their country. If you hold a temporary visa, or even a permanent visa, please check whether you are allowed re-entry into the country. Travellers coming back into Australia/New Zealand may have to go in quarantine for 2 weeks, at their own expense.
Be mindful that new Covid outbreaks can severely impact your travel, and that repatriation cannot be relied on in case commercial flights are cancelled or borders are closed.
Therefore the Embassy strongly recommends you consider all conditions on leaving and coming back to Australia or New Zealand before you decide to travel to Belgium. It is your responsibility to ensure you meet all criteria imposed by Australia or New Zealand.
