Belgium in Uganda

Welcome to our website

 
Embassy

Are you a Belgian who has recently moved to Uganda and would like to register with the Embassy in Kampala? Did you lose your passport while you were travelling through Uganda as a tourist? Do you need to request a visa in order to travel to Belgium? Then you’ve come to the right address.

This website will keep you up to date on consular matters that are specifically applicable to Belgians in Uganda, current events in Belgian foreign policy and other useful information or events.

 

ATTENTION

From 3rd September 2018, the Belgian Visa Application Center (VFS) in Kampala will be responsible for the receipt of physical visa applications.

VFS is located on 1st Floor, B Wing, Plot 42 Lugogo House (Lugogo By-Pass), in  Kampala.

Please note that applicants will therefore have to:

submit their visa application at the Belgian Visa Application Center (address mentioned here above) and not at the Embassy

book an appointment for submission through VFS and not through the Embassy

Deputy Prime Ministers Alexander De Croo and Didier Reynders have been following with great concern the developments in the Bedouin community of Khan al-Ahmar. Like the EU High Representative Federica Mogherini and other European countries, they urge the Israeli authorities not to proceed with the demolition of this community, which would lead to the forced displacement of its inhabitants.
