    hello Fadila,
    How are you?
    Are you in Belgium now? I am also planning to apply a visa for Belgium. This would be to visit a friend visa. Did the embassy asked you to show some money? In my case, I had 2 sponsors. They are my friends in Belgium. I am gay, and he visited me here in Philippines twice. And now, he wanted me to visit Belgium all expenses are shoulder by them. In this way, his brother sent me documents his income, and other important documents.
    In your experience,how many days should I apply? coz if 90 days the consul would be think I will be staying over.
    Infact, all the documents are with me now. Please help me some ideas with this.

    Thank YOu and have a great day ahead.

    Your friend,

    alright i understand now, Normally it should take about three months before you receive your visa. but they may give you 90days and during this 90day should get married.

    well it seem i went through similar procedure as urs but ours was that we were married before we apply for the Visa and it took us 9months to get me a visa. and this type of visa is called Family reunion visa. hope that is what u went for becos this type of Visa will let u stay in Belgium for good. Hope this information helps you.
