Disabled access

The embassy is committed to enabling disabled visitors to carry out their work in Belgium in an effective and professional way. The embassy is ready to provide support to disabled visitors. Support could include, but is not limited to, meeting disabled visitors at the airport or train-station, arranging transport, accompanying visitors to meetings or secretarial assistance with writing and distributing reports. Every individual’s needs will be different. In order to ensure that we can make arrangements to meet your requirements, please contact the embassy Visits team (tel: +32 2 287 8305) at least 48 hours before you travel.


All visitors will have to go through the security checkpoint at the entrance. Please co-operate with the security team as they conduct their checks which should only take a few minutes. The security measures in place are for the benefit of visitors and staff.
