VISA application

If you are a non-EU student, you will have to apply for a Belgian student visa.

Once you are admitted in one of our programs, you are required to pay a deposit of 3000 euros to secure your spot in the program. Once we have received your deposit, we will issue a letter that you can use for your visa application.

Make sure to start the visa application process as soon as possible - ideally 3 months before the start of the academic year - to ensure that you will receive your visa in time.

  • Step 1: Check the website of the Belgian Embassy as soon as you are admitted and start gathering all the necessary documents.
  • Step 2: Before handing in your application, pay the fee that is required by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Please note that the fee that applies to you is the one for “students who will be enrolled in an educational establishment organized, accredited or subsidized by the Government”. The application fee is non-refundable.

Additional visa costs

If your program contains one or several trips outside of Europe, please note that the administrative visa costs - if necessary for the travel - are at the expense of the student and not of Antwerp Management School.
