Are you a Belgian currently stranded abroad? We are doing everything we can to find a solution together with you. View here what you can do yourself (Dutch and French only): https://diplomatiebe.tappable.dev/coronavirus-nl / https://diplomatiebe.tappable.dev/coronavirus-fr.
The embassy is compiling lists of travellers wanting to return home, see this page.
You can contact us by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. Also regularly check our Facebook and Twitter page. We cannot answer phone calls at the moment.
Our team is committed to helping you. By registering on https://travellersonline.diplomatie.be/, you will be kept informed of possible options for returning to Belgium, including commercial flights.
For flights chartered by a country other than Belgium under the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism, please note that the number of seats available for Belgian citizens is the exclusive competence of the State that organised this flight. If there are not enough places to return all Belgians who wish to do so, priority will be given to the most vulnerable Belgians (health, serious conditions) or those who travel with very young children.
If you have to stay abroad for longer than expected, you should also know that in many countries there are Belgian expats who share useful tips or temporary solutions in the Facebook group #BelgenVoorElkaar.
