Belgium Airport Transit Visa

Belgium Airport Transit Visa

The Belgium Airport Transit Visa (type A) is for those who are going through Belgium en route to another country. It does not allow you to enter the Schengen territory.

Go to my Belgium visa page for information on other types of visas for Belgium.

I’ll tell you below the steps for getting a Belgium Airport Transit Visa.

Visa required for U.S. citizens:  No.  Belgium is a party to the Schengen Agreement, so U.S. citizens may enter Belgium for up to 90 days in any 180-day period for tourist or business purposes

Visa required for non-U.S. citizens: If you are not a U.S. citizen, if your name is NOT on this list, you NEED a Schengen visa to enter Belgium…
