We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Belgium. The British Embassy in Brussels provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Belgium.

In close liaison with British and Belgian businesses, we improve trade and investment performance and develop our commercial diplomacy to best serve Britain’s economic interests and prosperity. The embassy also works with the Belgian authorities on justice and home affairs, science and innovation, environment and climate change, and international crisis management. Additionally, the embassy and its consulate work on delivering a high quality consular assistance service to British nationals.

You can access UK government services while in Belgium.
