The Australian Embassy in Brussels has no visa function. Our office in London, United Kingdom manages visa and citizenship services for clients in Belgium.

Note: Belgium nationals can apply online for most Australian visas and citizenship through ImmiAccount. This is the preferred and most efficient way to apply. Any paper applications (where applicable) should be sent to the Australian High Commission, London.
