Koen, you can get back to apply. However, you should go to the CVASC branch. Its location is No. 109 Rue Neerveld, Woluwe Saint-Lambert 1200,Bruxelles.

Normally, it takes four working days. If you are in a hurry, you can apply for the express (3 working days) or rush service (2 working days).

thanks, Kevin! my key question though is whether they will make trouble of me having my legal residence abroad (istanbul) and whether i need anything more than my residence permit there. moreover, i have the invitation letter, completed application, pictures, passport photo and proof of flight, but do i also need proof of hotel accommodation or other things? THANKS!

Hey, if you have the invitation letter, hotel accommodation is not required.

thanks, Kevin! do you also happen to know when the CVASC is open for me to come in? i can't get through their online appointment system so wondered if i can just go there this Tuesday may 19 - morning or afternoon?
