Family reunion visa applications
As of 1 st January 2019 , all Somali visa applicants wishing to apply for family reunion with a family member (a refugee or a person with subsidiary protection in Belgium) will have to submit their visa applications in Nairobi (Kenya)! This is irrespective of your own personal status (refugee, resident etc) in Uganda.
This practically means:
The Belgian Visa Application Center (VFS) in Kampala will only receive and handle applications from Somali visa applicants until the end of this year 2018, in essence the applicants who have already booked an appointment until 31 st December .
Appointments that were made at VFS Kampala from 1st January 2019 onwards will be cancelled and clients advised to transfer their visa applications to Nairobi, details on the visa procedure in Nairobi can be found on the website of the Embassy of Belgium in Kenya via
All visa applications and appointments need to be made through the TLS - Belgian Visa Application Centre website instead of through the Embassy.
