At the end of the meeting of the Belgian government on Covid-19 measures, a statement was made to the press.
According to the decisions taken by the government as of Monday, May 23, passengers will not be required to wear masks in public transport.
Only hospitals, doctor’s offices and pharmacies will require masks. It will be recommended to wear a mask in places such as very crowded places and sick and elderly care homes.
The measures, which were previously applied and some of them were relaxed, were also lifted during travels to Belgium. Thus, the restriction on “non-essential” travel to Belgium from non-EU countries has ended.
Those coming from outside the EU are no longer required to show a valid Covid-19 certificate recognized by Belgium. The Covid-19 certificate shows that you were vaccinated, had the disease within 6 months, or had a negative PCR test in the last 72 hours.
Passengers will also no longer be required to fill out a tracking form for Covid-19 upon arrival in Belgium.
In Belgium, the positive trend in the data on the epidemic in recent months continues. In the country where the cases continue to fall, the number of daily cases is currently 3 thousand 500, the number of daily deaths is around 10.
