Records show that as far back as 1837, under Belgium’s Leopold I, there were already nominations for a Belgian consul in Manila. From 23 August 1845, political reports were already being received from the Consul General of Belgium in Manila. In 1935-1940, reports about the Philippines were being received from Washington. Then in 1946, such reports originated from Washington, Madrid and Nanking. In fact, a consul was stationed in Manila even during the war. In January 1949, the Belgian government decided to open a legation in Manila with a Chargé d’Affaires, Mr. Guillaume. Mr. Guillaume later presented his credentials on 25 September 1952 as “Minister of Belgium”.

Officially however, diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Belgium were established on 4 July 1946. Below is a historical sketch of the Embassy in Brussels:
