In order to limit the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) the Belgian authorities have decided to strongly discourage non-essential travel from Belgium. Non-essential travel from Belgium to a foreign country is no longer prohibited.
Non-essential travel to Belgium is no longer prohibited for persons who have either the nationality of or have their main residence in a country of the European Union or of the Schengen zone, or who have their main residence in a third country included on the EU list. Although you are still allowed to travel to Belgium from Thailand, the colour code has changed to red since June 9th. This means that in order to travel, you will have to present a negative PCR test carried out no more than 72 hours before departure. If you have your main residence in Belgium, theoretically you are not subject to this obligation. In practice, we do advise you to carry out a test, to avoid complications when boarding. On arrival, a minimum 7-day quarantine applies. It can be stopped when you have a negative result of a second PCR test - mandatory on the 7th day of your stay in Belgium (and on the 1st day if you have your residence in Belgium and have not done it before departure). If your test on the 7th day is positive, you must remain in isolation for a further minimum period of 10 days. We remind you that both quarantine and testing are compulsory and that a fine of 250 euros can be imposed in case of infringement. More information about the colour codes can be found at the following link: https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/colour-codes-by-country/
Non-essential travel to Belgium remains prohibited for persons who do not have the nationality of a country of the European Union or the Schengen zone, and who have their main residence in a country that is not included in the EU list. The rules that were already in force remain applicable. Existing categories for essential travel remain applicable and the essential travel certificate issued by the Belgian diplomatic or consular post remains necessary, unless the essential character of the trip is evidenced by the official documents in the possession of the traveller. The measures related to testing and quarantine remain unchanged. They can be found here for this category of travelers: Travel from outside the EU or Schengen zone
The different measures which apply on the Belgian territory can be found on https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/faq/.
No matter where you live, we invite you to follow carefully the recommendations of the local authorities and to adopt an appropriate behaviour. The measures are being taken depending on the evolution of the current health situation and therefore, are subject to change at any time.
