Why you should register
Being registered with the Embassy entitles you to benefit from the same services as those provided by municipal authorities in Belgium, i.e. the management of your administrative file and the update of your data’s in the Belgian National Register. It allows you to apply for identity card or passport, as well as for consular certificates or any administrative assistance you could need.
You may also participate in some elections in Belgium (federal general elections and European elections).
By keeping your file up to date, you will enable the Embassy to help you more immediately, including during emergency (e.g. accidents, natural disasters…).
How to register
Since 24/11/2020, the Belgian Embassy in Manila offers you the possibility to register online in the consular registers of the population.
You have access to this website if you:
- are Belgian;
- are not (or no longer) registered in a Belgian municipality, because you have communicated your departure abroad to this municipality;
- have a valid and activated Belgian eID card;
- know your PIN code and have a card reader
