Family Reunion- Belgium

Hello Dear,

My wife has applied Family reunion visa In Feb,2017. Visa is still under process and according to them, It can take 9 to 15 months.
Can I meanwhile apply Tourist Visa for my wife? Or Are there any other suggestions?

Thank You.

IMHO, it is not a good idea to apply (at least to the same country) another type of visa, while one type of visa application is already in progress.

Is it possible to travel on a tourist visa when the application is under process if you already have one? In that case, can he stay for 180 days? Also, when can he expect to get back the passport he submitted to the embassy?

In my case, I asked from the embassy(Abu dhabi in my case) where we applied for family reunification and according to the she can apply for other country schenegen visa (like France for example).
Concerning the returning of passport, it is not required to submit the passport at the time of submission of application, embassy should inform you when your visa will be processed and only then you can submit to get it stamped.

Hope this will help.

Thank you for your response. My husband submitted in India (Delhi) and they asked for the passport. Can someone who submitted in India confirm this and also throw some light?
