Travel regulations for Belgium
Passengers travelling to and via Belgium should note the following regulations
Mandatory PCR test and quarantine
For passengers with Belgium as final destination, the following rules apply:
- They must take a mandatory PCR test within 24 hours after their arrivalwhen coming from a red zone and having stayed there for more than 48h. (This test is free of charge upon presentation of the testing code you will receive after filling out the Passenger Locator Form).
- Testing is followed by a 7-day quarantine and a second PCR test after 7 days, which has to have a negative result in order to end the quarantine.
- Passengers coming from the United Kingdom, South Africa or South Americaare required to spend 10 days in quarantine with a PCR test on day 1 and day 7.
An exemption to the mandatory quarantine is possible for corporate/professional travellers. All details can be found on https://bta.belgium.be/en.
Furthermore, passengers (as from 6 years) who do not have a residence in Belgium need to provide an additional negative Covid-19 PCR test before boarding their flight if coming from a red zone and having stayed there for more than 48h. The negative test must be less than 72 hours old before departing for Belgium. More info via https://diplomatie.belgium.be and https://www.info-coronavirus.be.
Passenger Locator Form
All passengers travelling to and transiting on Belgian territory need to complete an electronic Passenger Locator Form (e-PLF) regardless of their departure point and nationality. This is possible as from 48h before boarding the flight. You will then obtain a QR code receipt to be presented at boarding.
Note: A paper PLF is only allowed for people who are technically unable to fill in the electronic form. 2 duplicate copies have to be filled out: one copy to be handed over before boarding; another copy to keep on you and to be presented for inspection when requested by authorities.
Passengers failing to submit this form or providing misleading and incomplete information will be denied boarding.
Passengers whose final destination is Belgium must keep their QR-code (e-PLF) or paper PLF for 48 hours after arrival. In the event of an infraction, a fine of EUR 250 will be imposed.
