I do not live in Belgium
You are not a Belgian resident and you are planning to stay for more than 48 hours in Belgium? The following rules apply when you are in Belgium.
What should I do?
- You must complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/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.
- Check the colour code of your country and/or whether it is listed as a very high-risk country. https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/colour-codes-by-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.
- 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. (Astra - Zeneca, Moderna, Janssen, Pfizer - Comirnarty)
- 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 quarantine.
- A test certificate is proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. • ! Please note: You do not live in the European Union or Schengen Area? Then you must have a certificate recognised by Belgium or the European Union.
