What travel-related measures are in place when traveling/returning to Belgium from abroad?

  1. You must complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) within 48 hours before arriving in Belgium, even if you’re vaccinated. The PLF must be completed:

  • by all people travelling to Belgium, except:

    • if they are staying for less than 48 hours in Belgium,

    • if they are returning to Belgium after a stay abroad of less than 48 hours;

  • Are you traveling to Belgium by plane or boat? Then you must always fill in the PLF, even if you are staying in Belgium for less than 48 hours or were abroad for less than 48 hours.

  • Are you travelling by train or bus from a country outside the EU or Schengen area? Then you must always fill in the PLF, even if you are staying in Belgium for less than 48 hours or were abroad for less than 48 hours.

  • If you have stayed in a very high-risk country for the past 14 days, you need to fill in the PLF at all times, regardless of the length of your stay.

  1. Check the colour code of the country you were in and/or whether this country is listed as a very high-risk country.

  2. Check which COVID certificate you have at www.covidsafe.be. In principle, you have applied for this before you left. 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. 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.

  • A recovery certificate shows that you have recovered from COVID-19. You have a positive PCR test result no older than 180 days and you no longer need to isolate.

  • A test certificate is proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. This test should be less than 72 hours old.
