Belgium National Long Stay Visa

The Belgium National Long Stay Visa (type D) is for foreigners who want to stay in Brazil longer than 3 months.  The holder of this type of visa is allowed to travel to another Schengen country for a total period not exceeding three months over a period of 6 months from the date of first entry into the Schengen territory. This visa is usually issued for people who want to work, reunite with family, or study in the Schengen territory.
