Planning your visit
Before coming, contact us so we can make your visit as convenient as possible:
  • If you already have the references of the files that interest you, please send them to us at least 2 working days ahead of your visit, so we can make sure those files are available for you on-site (not all documents are kept on-site and our deposit is located outside Brussels).
  • If not - or if it's your first visit, tell us what you're looking for, so we can help you further. You will receive a response from us within 15 working days.
  • Due to reinforced security measures, you are kindly requested to return by e-mail, at least 2 working days ahead of your visit an Excel completed form. Please indicate the corresponding ISO code in the 'Nationality' column.
You will receive an "e-pass" document that must be shown at the reception of the building, along with your ID.
