Notice for Ukrainian biometric passport holders

Holders of Ukrainian biometric passports are exempt from a visa for short visits to Schengen countries.

For holders of non-biometric Ukrainian passports, the Schengen visa remains mandatory.

For long stays in Belgium (more than 90 days), a type-D visa for Belgium must be applied for by both biometric and non-biometric passport holders.
