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

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 travel to Belgium or develop business relationships with Belgian companies.

The Embassy expat team has been completely renewed, last summer and we are expecting reinforcement in 2019. Consul Jean Pascal Dricot and I are eager to learn more about the Belgian nationals’ activities in Serbia and Montenegro, be it in the economic and commercial fiield, in the cultural  area or through academic or scientific cooperation. Likewise we would like to invite Serbian and Montenegrin nationals with specific ties to Belgian to keep in touch.

We remain at your service, in the Embassy and  through this website and our Facebook site.

Please don’t hesitate to give us your  feedback, it will help us to improve the quality of our work.
