Visa requirements

Traveling to Belgium from the US and EU countries for a short stay does not require a visa.  If you are traveling from countries where a visa is required, upon reviewing your medical records once we determine that you would benefit from treatments at TRAINM, we will give you a Medical Letter, detailing your anticipated treatment protocol and length of stay. You can then use the Medical Letter to secure medical visa requirements.
