Belgium Embassy in Ghana: Address & Contact Details

Unlike several other countries, Belgium is one of the few countries that does not have an embassy in Ghana. However, the country runs a consulate in Ghana. Most of the time, people confuse a consulate for an embassy. In reality, both terms are very much related but are not synonymous in meaning.


By original definition, an embassy is the main location for a country’s presence in another country. In other words, it is the major location for the diplomatic presence of a country in another country. On the other hand, a consulate is the branch of an embassy. A consulate or a consulate general is defined by the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations is the representative of a country in another that deals with individuals and businesses.

Belgium recently opened four embassies in Africa while it has consulates scattered around other countries in Africa. The Belgian embassies in Africa are located in Mali, Guinea, Niger, and the Benin Republic.
