Citizens and expatriate residents of the Kingdom can now apply for Schengen visas to Belgium at the visa application centers jointly launched by the Embassy of Belgium in Saudi Arabia and VFS Global.
In an expansion drive to meet the growing travel demand to Belgium from Saudi Arabia, VFS Global announced the launch of its new visa application center in Alkhobar. The company also inaugurated another center in Jeddah last month.
Applicants no longer need to visit the Embassy of Belgium and instead need to submit their visa applications at the VFS Global centers in Alkhobar and Jeddah.
During the inauguration in Alkhobar on March 5, Dominique Mineur, ambassador of Belgium to Saudi Arabia, said: “The recent opening in Jeddah last month has already resulted in an increase in the number of visa applications received for Belgium from the Kingdom.”
We sincerely hope the Alkhobar center will also generate the same interest and we thank VFS Global for their support. This will undoubtedly strengthen the relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Belgium.”
