On arrival in Belgium, the form must be handed over to the designated authorities at the border. This is a sanitary measure imposed by the Federal Public Service Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment. Further information can be found on the form itself.


The external borders of the Schengen area are closed for non-essential trips by third-country nationals. Currently and until further notice, visa applications are no longer received and no visas are issued.

After this date, the restrictions may be prolonged or modified. The travel restrictions apply to all non-essential travel to Belgium. Only travel for essential purposes can take place.

The travel restrictions do not apply to:

  • Nationals of EU Member States and Schengen Member States, for the purposes of returning to their homes;
  • Third-country nationals who are in possession a residence card (or D-visa) delivered by a Schengen Member State, for the purpose of returning to their homes;
