LATEST REGULATIONS CONCERNING COVID-19
TRAVEL REGULATIONS (updated 20/05/2022)
If you are planning to stay for more than 48 hours in Belgium, the following rules apply:
- Fill in the Passenger Location Form (PLF) if necessary.
The PLF must be filled in by everyone who, directly or indirectly, travels to Belgium from a country OUTSIDE the European Union or Schengen area that is not on the white list, by train (e.g. Eurostar), bus, boat or plane. In all other cases, you may fill in the PLF, but it is not mandatory.
- Check the colour code of your country and/or whether it is listed as a very high-risk country.
Please note: Have you been in a very high-risk country in the past 14 days? You are not allowed to travel to Belgium. You may only travel to Belgium if you have an essential reason in a very limited number of cases. Read more here.
- Check which COVID certificate you have. There are three types of certificates:
- A vaccination certificate proves that you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. You are fully vaccinated 2 weeks after your last vaccination dose and if the vaccine is EMA-certified or Covishield. From 1 September, vaccination certificates from non-EU countries will also be accepted in Belgium under certain conditions, pending their equivalence agreement with the EU. The full vaccination certificate (1/1 for Johnson&Johnson, 2/2 for Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca) is valid for 270 days (9 months). After the booster dose, the vaccination certificate remains valid indefinitely.
- A recovery certificate shows that you have recovered from COVID-19. This can either be an EU digital COVID certificate of recovery issued by one of the EU Member States or a recovery certificate issued in a non-EU country that is considered equivalent. These certificates are issued on the basis of a positive result of a PCR test or a positive result of a rapid antigen test. The recovery certificate is valid from 11 days to 180 days after the positive test.
- A test certificate is proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken up to 72 hours before your arrival in Belgium or a negative RAT test result taken up to 24 hours before your arrival in Belgium.
