It is highly advised for Belgian citizens that live in Australia to register with the Embassy. Having ones name registered in the population register kept by a Belgian Embassy abroad entitles the person to benefit from the same services as those provided by municipal authorities in Belgium, i.e. the management of your administrative file. Registering allows the Embassy assist its citizens more efficiently when issuing an identity card, issuing consular certificates. Registered citizens may also participate in some elections in Belgium.

All Belgian nationals over 12 years old whose main domicile is in Australia and who are listed in the population register kept by Belgian Embassy must apply for a Belgian identity card. ID cards must not be confused with the proof of identity or residence permit issued by the relevant authorities in your country of residence. The latter two documents are only valid and officially recognized in the country of residence.

When applying for a new passport it is important to provide the Embassy with an identity prove which can be the following:
a) A Belgian identity card or any document which is proof of identity
b) The previous passport or a certificate stating that the passport was lost or stolen

Those applying for the renewal of their passports will be invited to have their photograph, fingerprints and digital signature taken at the Embassy in Canberra.

Passports are issued within five working days once the passport application has been collected. A new emergency procedure has also been introduced: for an additional fee, passports may be issued by the municipality or province on the day after collection of the application by the private firm, provided that the application is faxed by the municipality or province to the production centre by 3 pm.

One must make a distinction between a passport and an identity card which, as its name implies, is just a single card. It is possible to travel to around 50 countries using an identity card, but a passport allows its holder to travel to any country in the world, subject to fulfilling any applicable visa requirements.

  • Visa for Belgium
  • Notary expertise
