Proof of solvency (for example, bank statements for the last three months or another proof of regular income: a letter from the employer stating the name of the employer, the name of the employee, his/her job title, annual salary, date of employment and if relevant, the duration of his/her contract. If the letter of employment is not available it can be substituted by other proof of regular income, for example, a letter from the university in question for students getting a scholarship or proof of pension/insurance/rent payments).

->  Or, in some cases, guarantor's financial means: Pledge of financial support, also called annex 3 bis (Dutch French). Through pledge of financial support, a Belgian national, or a foreign national resident in Belgium, acts as a guarantor for your period of residence, your return journey and your medical costs. The guarantor should ask for the pledge of financial support (3 bis) at the municipality (commune/gemeente) of his/her residence. When the pledge of financial support has been authenticated by the municipal authorities, the original document must be submitted to the Consulate General, within six months of the authentication, together with:

A. A copy of the guarantor’s last three pay slips or any other (official) document proving his/her solvency. In the case of a family visit, the guarantor must earn at least 800 € net per month + 150 € for each of the guarantor’s current dependents and/or 150 € for each person invited. In the case of a visit to friends, the guarantor must earn at least 1,000 € net per month + 150 € for each of the guarantor’s current dependents and/or + 200 € for each person invited.

B. A copy of a document proving that the guarantor is of Belgian nationality (identity card) or has authorization to stay in Belgium indefinitely (residence permit)

Given that the number of current dependents is a factor in determining the solvency of the guarantor, submit proof of the make-up of the guarantor’s family together with evidence of any family benefits received.
