Honorary Consuls are official representatives of a foreign country, who on a voluntary basis represent that country in cities that are distant from a full-time diplomatic mission of that foreign government. Honorary Consuls assist and protect the citizens of that country and facilitate trade and friendship between their city and the foreign government they represent.

As the Honorary Consulate of Belgium in Ohio, we are here to support and assist you, whatever your needs may be: questions about a work permit or residency permit to work or stay in Belgium, a travel visa to travel to Belgium, trade and investment questions about doing business in Belgium and its regions, etc.

There is a surprisingly strong and active bond between Belgium and the State of Ohio. Not only are many Ohio companies doing business with Belgium, a number of them also have established operations in Belgium itself, not the least of which the State of Ohio itself, which established its European trade and investment in Brussels, Belgium many years ago. Likewise, many Belgian companies are doing business with Ohio, and a number of them have established operations in Ohio.
