However, the prerequisite for this recovery is that the outsourcing partner whom the embassy or the consulate collaborate with (VFS Global or TLS Contact) must be operational again.
Applications for visas for family reunification may be now submitted and visas may be issued in the event of a positive decision, but gradually and as far as possible. The precondition for this is that the outsourcing partner with which the embassy or consulate is working if necessary (VFS Global or TLS Contact) is operational again. Before submitting an application for family reunification or collecting a granted visa, the family member should contact the relevant embassy or outsourcing partner to make an appointment.
GOOD TO KNOW:
Travellers from third countries must in many cases take into account the current sanitary measures in Belgium, including a 14-day quarantine. On the other hand, every passenger to Belgium is obliged to complete a Public Health Passenger Locator Form prior to travel. On arrival in Belgium, the form must be handed over to the designated authorities at the border. This form can also be completed and sent electronically via https://travel.info-coronavirus.be/ where it is available in Dutch, English, German and French. This is a sanitary measure imposed by the Federal Public Service Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment. Further information can be found on the form itself.
