Registration of births and deaths

For this procedure it is essential to obtain the international birth or death certificate emitted by the respective commune, duly apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium (or Luxembourg).

Once the document has been apostilled, the interested party must present it before the Consulate along with his identity card; in order to fill out a form that will be provided by the Consul (an appointment is necessary for this procedure).

  • Note: In the case of births, the form needs to be completed and signed by both parents of the minor, while in the event of death, the declaration has to be signed by the surviving spouse or a direct family member of the deceased.
