Coronavirus

For information on travel to and from Belgium, we refer you to the websites info-coronavirus and FPS Foreign Affairs, which are regularly updated. Additional information on measures taken in Belgium can be found on the Crisis Centre website.

Due to the uncertain evolution of the pandemic, we strongly recommend that you stay informed about the measures in force for a trip to Belgium via these reference websites.

In addition to any additional measures that may be communicated there, anyone travelling to Belgium from Iran must complete the passenger locator form, quarantine themselves in Belgium and submit to a test. Non-compliance with these measures will be fined.

Travellers to Iran are also advised to consult the travel advice section of the FPS Foreign Affairs.

Visa Section

In response to the coronavirus crisis, the European Union decided to temporarily close the external borders to third-country nationals making non-essential journeys. This temporary travel restriction applies to Iran until further notice.

Information on essential authorised travel is provided on the Immigration Office website.

The ban on non-essential travel to Belgium is no longer applicable to travellers who can prove by a vaccination certificate that they have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency. This must be the EU digital COVID certificate or a certificate from a third country, considered equivalent by the European Commission or by Belgium.

Authorised long-stay visa applications can be submitted to VFS.

For all other visa applications for essential travel, please first contact Tehran.Visa@diplobel.fed.be indicating the reasons why the visa application belongs to one of the 11 categories above, together with the relevant supporting documents.

New applications that do not fall under the essential travel categories cannot be submitted, nor can visas be issued.

Consular Section

The opening hours of the Embassy are temporarily reduced from Sunday to Thursday from 10am and 3pm.

In order to protect your health and that of other visitors, the Embassy only allows visits by appointment. Non-essential appointments can be rescheduled.

Visitors are invited to respect the following measures:

  • Maintain a social distance of at least 1.5 m.
  • Check your temperature before going to the appointment.
  • Wear a mask.
  • When entering the Embassy, use the hand sanitizing gel provided.

If you have been ill within the last two weeks or if you show symptoms of illness, please cancel your appointment. This also applies if you are living with someone who is ill or if you have recently been in contact with someone who had symptoms of COVID-19.

You can contact the Embassy of Belgium by e-mail: Tehran@diplobel.fed.be
