Belgian Consultative Committee decides to customize travel rules

The Belgian Consultative Committee has made the declaration that the travelling restrictions are getting customized for all the travellers visiting the nation from March 11, Friday.

The majority of the COVID-19 rules and regulations are still in existence and is soon going to relax after Belgium moves into the Code Yellow. A few days after the travelling restrictions are also going to be comfortable again like before.

On Friday, Federal Health Minister Frank Vandenbroucke mentioned, “Someone who is fully vaccinated and travelling within Europe will be able to do so very easily without too much paperwork.”

Along with this, the general obligation to fulfil the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) will ease up from March 11. He asserted, “The PLF only remains mandatory for those who travel to Belgium with a carrier from a third nation that is not on the EU’s so-called safelist.”

The third nations that are on the list, including non-European countries with a minimum infection circulation, are treated as European countries, which is the main reason why the PLF is no longer applicable.

Vandenbroucke has shared a warning, “That allowlist may come as a bit of a surprise: the US, the UK or Japan are currently not included on that list.”

For the individuals visiting Belgium and having one of the three valid COVID-19 certificates with them, such as the vaccination, test or recovery, there is no testing or need for the quarantine.

Vandenbroucke further added, “For those travelling within Europe, it is relatively simple. If you are entering Belgium and are not a Belgian resident, you need to show an EU Digital Covid Certificate (vaccination certificate no older than 270 days, recent negative test, or a recovery certificate). If you have one of the three, then you can get in here.”

On the other hand, the individual returning from the nation with a dark red color on the European travel map or a non-EU country on the White color list should be tested for COVID on the first of arrival.
