Visa for short stay (-90 days)

VISA SHORT STAY (stay of 90 days or less), Visa C also known as a Schengen Visa

The Embassy of Belgium in Malaysia handles Schengen visa applications to travel to Belgium, Luxemburg and Slovenia. Please be aware that the application has to be lodged with the Schengen representation of the country of your main destination. For tourists visiting several countries, it is the country where most of your time is spent. If you spend equal time in several Schengen states you are required to apply for the visa at the representation of the country where you enter the Schengen area.

Malaysian citizens are exempted from applying for this visa. These nationals are allowed to stay in the Schengen zone for a maximum of 90 days, each period of 180 days. You can use a calculator to see how many days remain on your visa.

A Schengen visa allows you to travel to all the Schengen countries.

Please proceed to the Embassy with the relevant checklist and all documents in the order of the checklist at your scheduled appointment time. Please come to the Embassy 10 minutes early as you will need to register for a visitor pass at the security.

Lodging your visa application will take approximately 20-30 minutes. If at the time of your application your file is incomplete, you will need to book a new appointment.

3. Requirements



You have been issued an entry visa for the territory of the Schengen States (1).

This visa does not give you, however, an absolute guarantee that you will be allowed to enter the territory of these States.

The authorities involved in border control will check in particular:

if you are in possession of a valid document authorising you to cross the border and if this document is accompanied by the requisite visa;

if you have not exceeded the maximum duration of authorised stay in the territory of the Schengen States, i.e. three months per six-month period (2);

your point of departure and your destination as well as the purpose of the stay and if necessary, the corresponding supporting documents.

Therefore, please keep the following documents to hand for each presentation at border crossing points:

your travel document bearing a valid visa;

the documentation justifying the purpose and conditions of your stay in the territory of the Schengen States (letter of invitation, hotel reservation, staying with a host);

the documents justifying sufficient means of subsistence for the duration and the purpose of the intended stay (cash, travellers' cheques, credit cards, declarations of sponsorship).

Entry to the territories of the Schengen States shall be refused:

if you are not in possession of a valid travel document;

if you have no valid visa;

if you cannot produce the documents justifying the purpose and conditions of your stay;

if you cannot produce the documents justifying that you have sufficient means of subsistence in relation to the duration and form of intended stay;

if you have already stayed three months during a six-month period on the territory of the Schengen States;

if you turn up at the external borders of one Schengen State, which is neither your single destination nor your principal or habitual destination, with a visa issued by another Schengen State, you will be liable to be refused entry and turned back to your country of residence (e.g. you arrive at Zaventem or Gosselies with a visa issued by the consulate in another Schengen State, when the purpose of your journey is to see family or visit Belgium as a tourist).
