TRAVEL TO BELGIUM FROM 21 JULY 2021
I. Permission to travel to Belgium from third countries
Non-essential travel to Belgium is only permitted for individuals who have their primary residence in or the nationality of a member state of the European Union or Schengen area, or have their residence in a third country included in the the EU list.
For countries within the jurisdiction of the Embassy, this means that non-essential travel is prohibited for individuals who do not possess the nationality of an EU- or Schengen country and have their primary residence in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar. Requests for a certificate of essential travel can be made by email to the Embassy at: email@example.com
II. Procedures for travel to Belgium from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand
All travellers must fill out the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) and indicate where they have stayed during the 14 days previous to arrival in Belgium.
(I) Based on the recommendations of the European Council, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar are situated in the red zone. Every person above the age of 12 who travels from one of these countries and does not have his or her primary residence in Belgium, needs to be in possession of:
- OR a negative PCR test, executed not more than 72 hours before arrival in Belgium;
- OR a certificate of vaccination, a test or proof of recovery form Covid-19. A certificate means either the European digital COVID-certificate (obtained in an EU member state) or – in the future – a certificate delivered by a third country that is recognized as equivalent by the European Commission. The recognition of certificates of the four countries concerned is currently being discussed. The information on this website will be updated once more information on the recognition is available.
In practice, in view of the different requirements introduced by airlines and transit countries, we nevertheless also advise travellers with primary residence in Belgium to take a Covid-test maximum 72 hours before arrival in Belgium, in order to avoid problems when boarding.
