Belgium Visa Requirements for Medical Tourists

Belgium is becoming a prominent tourism destination, especially in terms of medical tourism due to the presence of some of the best hospitals and quality healthcare systems in all of Europe. 

The government of Belgium requires that all tourists visiting the country hold a valid Schengen Visa. A Schengen Visa can be obtained by applying to the Belgian Embassy. You will need to submit various documents like a letter of sponsorship, relevant financial details, purpose of visit and return air tickets. There are some countries that are exempt from the visa requirement to enter Belgium for a maximum period of 90 days. These countries include Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, and the USA among others. 

There is no provision for a separate medical visa, but medical tourists can receive medical treatment in the country on a tourist visa. 

**It is advisable to contact an embassy, consulate, or similar expert in visa requirements prior to traveling for your medical care. Please click here for more information on visas to Belgium.
