Registry at the consulate in Beirut

If you are Belgian, all changes to your civil status are governed by Belgian law. Belgian law applies even if you live in Lebanon.

If you live in Lebanon, you must inform the Belgian consulate in Beirut of any changes to your civil status.

The recognition of foreign documents and certificates in Belgium and their transcription into the civil status registers will also be covered extensively in this section.

In some cases, the Head of a Belgian consulate abroad can act as a Registrar. This section clarifies which documents and certificates they may draw up.
