Embassy and Consulates of Belgium in India

Belgium in India

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.
