As from 18 December, persons travelling to Belgium after a stay of more than 48 hours in a red zone abroad will be required to go in quarantine for 10 days and to be tested for Covid-19 after 7 days. Those who test negative on day 7 will no longer have to be in quarantine.

Since mid-October, persons returning from a red zone were no longer required to automatically go into quarantine. Instead, a self-assessment had to be completed on the Passenger Locator Form to assess whether or not someone should go into quarantine.

As from 18 December, the Passenger Locator Form still needs to be completed for stays of more than 48 hours, but the self-assessment is no longer required.

The relevant legal text has not yet been published and the exceptions to the stricter quarantine obligation are still being examined. The Belgian employers’ organisations are already lobbying for an exception to the rule for professional travel.

Of course, as soon as we have a definitive answer on this, we will inform you further.
