    Hmmm...Let me think...

    If it's just been a couple of weeks since you lodged your application, most likely, there's nothing to update yet. If you call them, they will just tell you, "No result yet." And that's it. Nothing else! :S Plus, it's gonna cost you a lot for the phone call ( if you're not from Manila). I would suggest that you send them an e-mail on the 3rd week (from the day you applied for you visa) although the best time would be after 1 month. You can only send an e-mail to this address: [...]. I was only able to send an e-mail to the personal inbox of one of the visa officers because she replied to my message. They use their personal e-mail addresses kasi when replying to the inquiries/follow-ups.

    Now, when you send an e-mail to them, do not forget to include your full name and visa number in your e-mail. Here's a sample of what I always write.

    In the subject field, I type: Visa Status Inquiry
    And the body of the message:

    Good day,

    I just wish to know the status of my visa application. And if possible, may I also know the date when my documents were sent to the Immigration Service of Belgium?

    Your response will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

    Sincerely yours,
    (insert name)
    Visa number: (insert visa number)

    Normally, it takes about 3 days before you can get a reply from them. I hope this helps. :)

    And you know what they say, "Patience is a virtue." I know it's not easy to be very patient on this but good things come to those who wait. ;)
