List of diplomatic missions in Belgium

Map of diplomatic missions in Belgium

This article lists diplomatic missions resident in the Kingdom of Belgium. This listing excludes honorary consulates.

At present, the capital city of Brussels hosts 184 embassies. Brussels is unique in that it is not only the seat of the Belgian Government, but also of the European Commission, which is the executive wing of the European Union to which countries accredit representatives, and of the NATO. Thus, a country can send up to three ambassadors to Brussels: one to Belgium, one to the EU, and one to the NATO. Some embassies serve all three functions, while other countries open separate embassies for each, or combine any two of the functions in one embassy.

Notes

a.   ^ The political status of Kosovo is disputed. Having unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo is formally recognised as an independent state by 100 UN member states (with another 13 states recognising it at some point but then withdrawing their recognition) and 93 states not recognizing it, while Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory.
