COVID-Related Advice

Last update: 5 June 2022

The following information are provided on an advice basis only and are not binding.

Entry to Belgium

The ban on non-essential travel from outside the EU has been lifted. Travellers are no longer required to complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF), present a COVID-19 vaccination or recovery certificate, or a negative COVID-19 test. The requirement for quarantine and COVID-19 testing on arrival has been removed.

Please note that entry restrictions still apply for travellers coming from a very high-risk country. The list of countries classified as “very high-risk” is available on the Belgian Government website.

Travellers should also check whether the airline they intend on travelling with has any additional requirements before travel.

Staying in Belgium

COVID-19 restrictions have eased across Belgium. Shops, restaurants, and bars are open. Individuals are no longer required to present a COVID Safe Ticket (CST) when visiting restaurants, cafes, cinemas, gyms, etc.

Face masks are no longer mandatory except in health facilities – more information on the Belgian Ministry of Health website. Wearing a face mask is still recommended, including in indoor areas, crowded areas, and places where adequate social distancing cannot be guaranteed.

COVID Testing

The Belgian Federal Public Service (FPS) provides a Public Health’s COVID-19 Testing page with complete information on testing, including a link to an interactive map of test centers throughout the country. Brussels Airport also offers a COVID-19 testing site for both arriving and departing passengers. Options for delivery of test results will depend on the site.
