Embassy of Belgium in Pakistan

Belgium in Pakistan and Afghanistan

Welcome to our website

Due to security threats, the Belgian government had to stop the evacuation from Kabul International Airport. Belgium continues to work with its partners to find a solution for Belgians and beneficiaries in Afghanistan.

Due to the large number of calls and e-mails, it is possible that the communication lines are sometimes busy.  We advise you to try again.  We ask you to contact us as much as possible by e-mail.

To Belgians and entitled persons in Afghanistan: if you have already contacted the Embassy and your details have been recorded, your request will be followed up.  Unless you have new information, there is no need to send a reminder.
Please stay informed of all evolutions.

All other customers of the Embassy in Pakistan are asked to be patient and understand the longer waiting times in these exceptional moments.

Are you in Belgium? Please do not call the Embassy in Islamabad with any questions regarding the evacuation. You can contact the Crisis Centre of the FPS Foreign Affairs at +32 2 501 4000.

As in 2019 and in 2020, Belgium is donating 2 million euros to the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) for its activities in Iraq and Syria. These funds have been used in recent years for, among others, mine clearance, risk education and victim assistance, thus contributing to alleviating the needs of the civilian population. In Iraq, for example, our contribution helped deploy mixed demining teams, with women and men. Working with these teams allows the deminers to more easily establish contact with local communities and builds trust more quickly.
