(*) For the certificate of life, no certificate is drawn up, but the embassy confirms the personal details and being alive on the pre-printed form of the Belgian pension institution. If you are unable to register in person, please email a photo of yourself with a recent newspaper. The certificate of life is then dated to the date of the newspaper.
