Before applying, please ensure Luxembourg is your main destination and that you are very clear on your purpose of travel. Read carefully our chapter on REQUIRED DOCUMENTS.
You will first fill in your electronic application form on this official website
Once you have printed and signed this form and gathered the documents in support of your application, you will make an appointment with the Belgian Visa Application Center in Manila. For this, please follow the instructions given on the website of VFS
The last step is to lodge personally the visa application at the Belgian VAC and eventually come for an interview at the Embassy (if specifically requested).
As of 02 February, 2020 the Schengen visa fee per person (Short Stay Visa) will increase from 60 to 80 euros. For a long-term stay (visa D), the visa fee is 180 euro.
The visa fee is paid in pesos as per the exchange rate communicated by the Embassy of Belgium in Manila. The same is subject to change without notice. The visa fee is non-refundablee.
For amounts and rates, kindly refer to the updated consular taxes. Do not pay any additional contribution in Belgium for your visa D application for Luxembourg.
Applicants submitting their files at the Belgian VAC shall be levied service fees from VFS payable together with the visa fees. Applicants that are exempt from the visa fees are not exempt from paying these service fees.
