As from the 15th December all Belgium visas will be done through Tele Performance in either Johannesburg or Cape Town.


Passengers over the age of 12 years when submitting for the 1st time will be required to have their fingerprints taken. (These fingerprints will remain on the system for 5 years) If clients have had previous VIS Schengen visa then Visas International can submit on behalf of client.


The Embassy in Johannesburg: Visas International can only apply on the client’s behalf if the client has had a previous VIS Schengen visa issued in the last 3 years. Also if a client has had a previous Schengen visa issued in the past 3 years, then they do not require an appointment and the procedure is we arrange for the documents to be couriered to TLS for processing.
