I just got an email now saying that my application has been referred; ‘Belgian embassies and consulates general must submit certain visa applications to the Immigration Office of the Federal Public Service Home Affairs for a final decision’.
I don’t get it. I made sure I had all the correct documents. I’m a first-year law student at a good university here in the UK, and was given a previous Schengen visa in February and travelled to the Netherlands and returned. Why is my application now being referred?
