EAERE 2024
Leuven, Belgium
01 Jul - 04 Jul 2024
29th Annual Conference
of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists


Belgium is a European Union member state and part of the Schengen zone. Travelling to Belgium is easy and the documentation required varies, depending on your nationality.

For European citizens, a national identity card or passport is usually sufficient. In case of doubt, please check with your home country foreign office which travel documents you need for traveling to Belgium.

For third countries, Schengen Visa holders are allowed to enter Belgium. The Schengen Visa makes traveling between 25 member countries (22 European Union member states and 3 non-EU members) much easier and less bureaucratic. Traveling on a Schengen visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries using one single visa, thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country. A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 month period.

Citizens of these countries are required to have visa to enter Belgium.

Citizens of these countries are not required to have visa to enter Belgium.

The Local Organising Committee will, on request, provide an invitation letter to conference participants who need to obtain a visa.

Please register for the conference (which includes the payment of the registration fee) and then request an invitation letter by sending your request to eaere2024@kuleuven.be, together with:

a) a copy of your passport,
b) your full affiliation,
c) full professional address.

Incomplete requests will not be considered.

Please do allow ample time, as the process of applying for a visa can be lengthy.
