Welcome to our website

Are you a Belgian who has recently moved to Ukraine and would like to register with the Embassy in Kyiv? Did you lose your passport while you were travelling through Ukraine as a tourist? Do you need to request a visa in order to travel to Belgium? Then you’ve come to the right address.

Important notice to holders of a Ukrainian biometric passport from 11 June 2017 on

Please note that from 11 June 2017 on the holders of a Ukrainian biometric passport will be exempted of the obligation of a visa for their short stay visits to the Schengen area.

You will find more instructions on following website: http://openeurope.in.ua/.

If you are holding a non-biometric Ukraine passport, the Schengen visa stays compulsory.

Ukrainian citizens wishing to stay for a long period in Belgium (more than 90 days) must apply for a type-D Belgian visa, whether they hold a non-biometric or a biometric passport.

Beware of scams

A number of citizens informed us over the last few days that they had been the victims of attempted scams. They were contacted by con-men who tried to extort money from them over the phone by pretending to be working for our  Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In order to make their story more credible, they had managed to have our central telephone number in Brussels appear (02/501.81.11) on the telephone screen of their victims.

We call expressly everyone not to take any kind of action following such calls. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs never takes contact by phone alone to clear financial matters with the public, whatever the issue.

If you are the victim of a fraud, please inform us through our complaint form (https://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/Contact/complaints) or refer it directly to the federal contact point (https://meldpunt.belgie.be/meldpunt/en/welcome).
