I have a single entry visa to visit Belgium in late October (2 nights). I applied for multiple entry through Belgium, but I only received a single entry.

I also have a ticket booked for a trip to France in mid-November (also 2 nights).

How can I obtain a visa for my France trip?

More info: I didn't know I cannot have a new visa while having unused Schengen visa, so now I have appointment to issue French visa too, for this Friday. What should be my course of action?

As long as the countries you are visiting are part of the Schengen treaty, you should be fine, you will only need a multiple entry visa if you will be going into a Schengen country then to another country which is not a member, an then in again.

In your case both Belgium and France are members of this treaty, so again, you won't need a multi-entry visa.

If you need to be more confident about this, you could consult with the French Embassy in your country of residence.
