COVID-19 related travel restrictions to and from Belgium
1. In order to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) the Belgian authorities strongly discourage international travel to and from Belgium. Always follow the measures applicable in the country of destination and the measures upon your return to Belgium. More information can be found here.
2. If you are a national of the EU/Schengen zone, or have your residence there, you can travel to/from Belgium, although it is strongly discouraged.
3. If you are NOT a national of the EU/Schengen zone, nor have your residence there, you can only travel to Belgium for essential resaons OR with a recognised vaccination certificate. Inform yourself on the requirements for the vaccination certificate and what travel can be considered as essential. In the latter case an essential travel certificate is required and can be delivered by a Belgian diplomatic post in order to certify the essential nature of the travel. More information can be found here.
In addition and as before, every traveler must be in possession of the documents required to enter the Schengen area (visa).
