The Consulate General is not competent to issue such document for any period of time you spent in Belgium. If you require an extract from the Belgian criminal record, you should direct your request to the Federal Public Service Justice – Central criminal record.

In Hong Kong – CNCC
The Hong Kong Police Department can issue a Certificate of No Criminal Conviction (CNCC) for the duration of your stay in Hong Kong.
Generally speaking, only Hong Kong citizens can ask a CNCC. Foreign citizens who would like to apply for a CNCC need to provide a recommendation letter from the Consulate General of Belgium. To request this letter you need to provide a copy of your passport and your HKID, as well as the reason why you are applying for the CNCC. The recommendation letter will be issued free of charge.
You then have to take this recommendation letter to the Police Department in Wanchai. You can find the procedure on the website of the Police Department: http://www.police.gov.hk/ppp_en/11_useful_info/cert_no_crime.html#oversea
The police will send the CNCC to the Consulate General and you will receive a notification to come and collect the document.
There are two additional steps before you can submit the CNCC to the Consulate General (e.g. to apply for a visa):
- After collecting the CNCC from the Consulate General you need to take it to the District Office to make a declaration. Click here for information.
- After making the declaration, the CNCC needs to be legalised by apostille before it can be used at the Consulate General of Belgium. Click here for information about legalisation and apostille.
