Belgium: Immigration Office Increases Administrative Fees

June 16, 2021

Key Points

  • Complete payment must be presented at the time of application.  
  • Payment is not reimbursed if the application is denied or abandoned. 
  • The fees are not required if the applicant is under 18 years old, a citizen of the EU or a Turkish citizen.  

Overview 

The Belgian Immigration Office is increasing their administrative fees when processing certain immigration applications, including D visas and residence permit applications. The cost of applying to reside in Belgium for longer than 3 months while carrying out professional activities has gone up to €366, and if you are applying as a family member this administration fee has gone up to €209. If you have a long-term residence status in another EU member state, the cost to apply to reside in Belgium for longer than 3 months will incur a fee of €63. 
 
Looking Ahead

Individuals must provide proof of full contribution payment to cover the cost of their application when applying to a Belgian diplomatic mission, consular post, or municipal administration in their location of residence. The application will not be processed if proof of payment is not submitted.
