PASSENGER LOCATOR FORM
From August 1 onward, all travelers arriving in Belgium, regardless of their nationality or country of departure, are required to fill out the electronic Public Health Passenger Locator Form before arrival in Belgium.
- As of July 16, Sweden is situated in the “orange travel category”:
- Travelling between Sweden and Belgium (in both directions) is permitted;
- Travelers are urged to remain careful and vigilant, and to strictly respect the current measures;
- Upon arrival in or return to Belgium, all travelers are strongly recommended to do a covid-test.
- As Denmark has placed Belgium in the ‘red travel category’, travelers from Belgium are only allowed entrance in Denmark if they can prove that their final destination is Sweden ( through e.g. a hotel reservation in Sweden). They are no longer allowed to spend the night in Denmark.
- The following measures remain extremely important: good hand hygiene, social distancing, wearing face masks on public transport, avoiding large crowds
- Latvia has placed Belgium in the “red travel category”:
- Travelers coming from Belgium are obliged to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival in Latvia;
- All travelers from Belgium are obliged to fill out this form and carry it with them upon arrival in Latvia.
CURRENT CORONA-MEASURES IN BELGIUM
- Face masks are mandatory on public transport, in shops, restaurants, bars, cafés, crowded (shopping)streets, and all public spaces where social distancing is not possible;
- Every so-called ‘family-bubble’ can only have contact with a maximum of 5 other persons;
- In restaurants, one person must leave his or her contact details, which allows for rapid tracing of infections if necessary.
! Some cities and provinces enforce stricter measures (e.g. a curfew in Antwerpen). Please make sure to gather specific information on the current regulations and measures in the regions and cities of your visit.
The travel advice is updated regularly on the basis of medical statistics of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

That is why the Facebook group #BelgenVoorElkaar - #BelgesSolidaires - #BelgierFürEinander has been started to ease the contact between Belgians. Become a member now at https://www.facebook.com/groups/BelgenVoorElkaarBelgesSolidairesBelgierF...
