Belgium in Serbia

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Belgium in Belgrade

 

Dear visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Belgium in Belgrade. The services of this Embassy cover the Republic of Serbia as well as Montenegro.

Belgium and Serbia maintain longstanding official relations since 1879. These relations are more intense than ever with manifold bilateral contacts in diverse fields. During the Belgian EU presidency in the second semester of 2010 significant steps were made to further the EU perspective of Serbia and Montenegro:  the European Commission was tasked to submit its opinion on the membership application of Serbia. Montenegro received the EU candidate country status.

The Embassy works to advance relations between Belgium and Serbia and between Belgium and Montenegro, through its contacts with the Governments, business communities, civil societies and the public at large in Serbia and Montenegro respectively.

We believe in providing correct, fast and professional services by our diplomatic and consular representatives.  This site aims to offer the most relevant and up to date information for Belgians residing in- or travelling to- Serbia and Montenegro, and Serbian or Montenegrin citizens who wish to voyage to Belgium or develop business with Belgian companies.

I wish you a fruitful visit of our Website.

Your feedback is always appreciated.

Leo D’aes
