Welcome to our website

Residence

 

As a result of a global reorganisation of the network of Belgian embassies and consulates abroad, it was decided to close the Consulate General of Belgium in Chennai. 
From now on, Andra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Puducherry, Tamil Nadu and Telangana will be covered by the Belgian Consulate General in Mumbai. 

We assure that everyone can count on our team in Mumbai for continued service.

As in 2019 and in 2020, Belgium is donating 2 million euros to the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) for its activities in Iraq and Syria. These funds have been used in recent years for, among others, mine clearance, risk education and victim assistance, thus contributing to alleviating the needs of the civilian population. In Iraq, for example, our contribution helped deploy mixed demining teams, with women and men. Working with these teams allows the deminers to more easily establish contact with local communities and builds trust more quickly.
