The relations between a part of the present South Africa and Belgium were established in 1875 during a visit by President Thomas Francois Burgers of the South African Republic to Europe. In a letter of 11 February 1876 President Burgers made a formal application to the Court of King Leopold II for acceptance of a representative, and four days later the Royal Exequatur was issued. Simultaneously a Brussels advocate, Gustave Biebuyck, was appointed as Consul. His major mission was the implementation of a trade agreement, which was concluded simultaneously, and he was instructed to supervise the conclusion of an order for the delivery of a railway line between Pretoria and Delagoa Bay.
