Warning - Beware of scams

A number of citizens informed us over the last few days that they had been the victims of attempted scams. They were contacted by con-men who tried to extort money from them over the phone by pretending to be working for our  Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In order to make their story more credible, they had managed to have our central telephone number in Brussels appear (02/501.81.11) on the telephone screen of their victims.

We call expressly everyone not to take any kind of action following such calls. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs never takes contact by phone alone to clear financial matters with the public, whatever the issue.

If you are the victim of a fraud, please inform us through our complaint form (https://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/Contact/complaints) or refer it directly to the federal contact point (https://meldpunt.belgie.be/meldpunt/en/welcome).

 

Are you a Belgian who has recently moved to Finland or Estonia and would like to register with the Embassy in Helsinki? Did you lose your passport while you were travelling through Finland or Estonia 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 Finland and Estonia, current events in Belgian foreign policy and other useful information or events.
