Belgium is represented abroad by over 100 Embassies and Consulates-General. The Embassies are located in the capitals of the countries in which they exercise their jurisdiction. This jurisdiction sometimes extends to neighbouring countries which do not have a Belgian embassy. In addition to their diplomatic tasks, our Embassies and Consulates also act as public services, in certain areas, for Belgians abroad. As a Belgian citizen living abroad, it is always advisable to contact the Embassy or Belgian Consulate in your country before contacting FPS Foreign Affairs in Brussels. Belgium is also represented abroad by several Honorary Consuls whose range of activities is more limited.

The Embassy offers the following services:

  • Registration
  • Belgian passport
  • Identity card for Belgians abroad
  • Notary expertise
  • Registry
  • Nationality
  • Social security abroad
  • Pension
  • Travelling with pet animals
  • Criminal record
  • Certificates and forms
  • Legalisation of documents, etc.

Having your name registered in the population register kept by a Belgian Consulate or Embassy abroad entitles one 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 or Consulate to assist you more efficiently when issuing an identity card, issuing consular certificates. One may also participate in some elections in Belgium (federal general elections, and European elections if you reside in an EU Member State).

A passport is an official, worldwide recognized and usable travel document in the format of a booklet issued by the relevant authority in a particular State to its nationals. One must make a distinction between a passport and an identity card which, as its name implies, is just a single card. Belgian passports are valid five years. One can apply for a new passport at the Belgian Embassy.

A normal Belgian passport may be obtained very quickly from your municipal or provincial administration via the emergency procedure. However, it may sometimes prove necessary to issue a passport almost immediately, on pressing humanitarian grounds which must be justified (e.g. in the event of a serious accident abroad involving a close family member, the admission of a close family member to hospital under critical circumstances, or the disappearance or death of a close relative abroad), when the applicant can and must leave immediately. To enable such urgent applications to be processed, the Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs has designed a temporary passport that may only be issued by the Federal Public Service itself. Such temporary passports are valid for 6 months only.

In principle, applicants must collect their passport in person from the municipal or provincial administration. If an applicant is unable to collect their passport in person, another individual may do so upon presentation of written authorisation from the applicant.

All Belgian nationals over 12 years old whose main domicile is abroad and who are listed in the population register kept by Belgian embassies and consulates must apply for a Belgian identity card (ID card). Since 1 December 2010 Belgian embassies and consulates switched to issuing eID cards. These eID cards are valid for 5 years and remain valid if you move to an area falling under the jurisdiction of a different embassy or consulate or return to Belgium. Moreover, most eID cards of Belgian nationals who have moved abroad since August 2008 and who registered their move with their local authority will also have remained valid.
