Default Belgian Citizenship

Just curious if anyone knows if I can claim my Belgian citizenship through my Grandfather.


My dad was born in the UK but my Grandfather was Belgian.

My father is doing some investigation. He's trying to find records of his Dad's birth certificate.
We have his Belgian passport.

Can it be passed down to me if my Dad manages to get his Belgian citizenship through his Dad?

I looked into this a few years ago for a friend. From memory you can no longer apply from outside Belgium so you would need to move to Belgium, albeit temporarily, in order to apply.

ohh I hope that's not the case.
Let's see what my Dad digs up.

Thanks

Just stumbled on this if it helps...

Belgium - About nationality from the official diplomatie.belgium

Pinch of salt as always, but the links seem to work.

Thanks for that BEVS.

The original link (via another link) didn't quite end up in the right place, to my mind.

And we can now ignore my 'pinch of salt' comment.
