Visa: A visa should be applied for at the Belgian Embassy or consulate in the home country well in advance. ● EU-national do NOT need a visa ● non-EU nationals residing outside the EU will always need a visa (‘C’ < 3 months or ‘D’ > 3 months) ● non-EU nationals residing INSIDE the EU and carrying a valid residence permit from that EU-country, do NOT need a visa for stays < 3 months; for stays > 3 months:, always apply for a Belgian visa in your current EU-country and do NOT travel to Belgium without a valid visa. Always check the website of the Federal Foreign Affairs Department to find out whether you need a visa to come to Belgium. If you need a visa, you will have to prove your solvency. This solvency can be proven in different ways: - A document certifying that the student has been awarded a study grant or scholarship -"An agreement for acceptance of financial responsibility" (letter of a guarantee) by the so-called Annex 32 - A proof of your own financial means by transferring a certain amount to a blocked bank account in Belgium on your name In case you would like to use the last option (prove your financial means), Hasselt University can assist you and provide you with a letter of proof of solvency. Kindly contact Mr. Marc Thoelen ( marc.thoelen@uhasselt.be ) in case you would like to make use of this procedure. The detailed instructions will be communicated to you afterwards .For further information, please contact Mr. Marc Thoelen ( marc.thoelen@uhasselt.be ). As health insurance is mandatory in Belgium, Hasselt University insists that all students are covered with insurance for the full period of their stay. Furthermore, we strongly advise students to subscribe to some form of hospitalization and repatriation insurance, as far as it is not included in your health insurance. - EU Students are typically covered through their local insurance and EHI-card. - All NON-EU Students should enrol into the SIP (Student Insurance Programme) at www.sipinsurance.eu which costs 40 EUR/month. This is a comprehensive insurance, covering civil liability, repatriation, health and accident insurance. After payment of the fee, you will receive a certificate that you should upload into your student file. Please make sure you use the exact same name and surname as for your enrolment at Hasselt University. If you have any further questions about insurances, please contact Mr. Marc Thoelen ( marc.thoelen@uhasselt.be ).
