Belgium in Israel

Welcome to our website

 

The European Council recommended on 06.05.2021 that European countries put Israel on the green list so that its residents are no longer subject to travel restrictions to Europe. Belgium has yet to decide when and how (gradually or not) the access restrictions to Belgium will be lifted for residents in Israel. As soon as the decision is taken, it will be communicated on the Belgian website  - https://www.infoco-ronavirus.be/en/, via the Belgian adapted list of green countries.

So this means that for now, residents of Israel are still not allowed to make non-essential trips to Belgium. The information below is therefore still current.

  • For Belgians, Europeans and EU residents: non-essential travel to Belgium from Israel is strongly discouraged.
  • For non-Europeans, non-essential travel from Israel to Belgium is prohibited.
  • For non-Europeans, essential travel from Israel to Belgium is permitted provided that an essential travel certificate is obtained from the Belgian Consulate. To find out if travel is essential and check the measures to be taken (quarantine, Covid test, PLF) during a trip to Belgium, see:

Attention: access to the Consulate  only with confirmed appointment  In case of emergencies you can contact us by email: consulate.telaviv@diplobel.fed.be  

 

Due to the health crisis, the following changes have been made to the operation of the Consulate:

  • All visits to the Consulate must be by appointment, also for procedures that were done without an appointment before (withdrawal of documents, legalisation, ...). 
  • Picking up a passport, ID or documents without an appointment =  only on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 08.30 – 09.30.
  • Appointments for requests of passports + ID can be made on our website .  Do not go to the Consulate without an explicitly confirmed appointment.
  • The Consulate will process all possible files by e-mail (Please pay attention that the email does not exceed more than 10MB. Emails exceeding that limit will not arrive. Therefore, it is recommended to send big files through several emails) This will notably be the case for the following procedures, which can be launched by email, without traveling to the Consulate:
    • Registration request, including the first registration of a child: you send us, by e-mail, a scanned copy of all the required documents.
    • Request for a consular attestation: you send us, by e-mail, a scanned copy of the completed and signed request form. As soon as the attestation is ready, an appointment will be made to withdraw the attestation and pay the consular fee.
    • Request to update your marital status: you send us, by e-mail, a scanned copy of the required documents. 
    • Life certificate request: processed entirely by e-mail. Click here for information.
    • Special nationality files: you send us, by e-mail, a scanned copy of the required documents. 
  • You will be invited to respect specific rules of health prudence during your visit to the Consulate. Click here to find out what they are. You will be reminded of them upon confirmation of the appointment. You are asked to respect them strictly, for the wellbeing of all.
