Belgium in Finland and Estonia

Welcome to our website

In the current circumstances, we have had to adapt our consular services to protect the health of our visitors and our personnel as much as possible. Our consular desk now serves only by appointment. Please make an appointment by telephone +358 9 17 04 12 or by email (helsinki@diplobel.fed.be). 

In addition, we kindly ask all Belgians in Finland and in Estonia to provide us with their contact details:

  • Belgians already registered at the embassy need to make sure we have their most recent contact details
  • Belgian tourists are asked to register themselves on https://travellersonline.diplomatie.be
  • Belgians temporarily residing in Finland or Estonia (such as students) are asked to provide us with their contact details (including email address and phone number) by email (helsinki@diplobel.fed.be)
