From vaccine to 7-day quarantine. New rules if you have plans to travel to Belgium
New rules have been set for Albanian citizens who have plans to travel to Belgium.
The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs has announced that the trip can be made if you have a vaccination certificate and upon arrival in Belgium will be included in the 7-day quarantine.
In the case of essential travel they must have confirmation of travel from the Belgian embassy in Bulgaria.
Passengers over the age of 12 must be provided with a PCR test of the last 72 hours and upon arrival in Belgium will be quarantined.
Following the recommendation of the European Union a few days ago on the new regime of movement between countries, in the framework of measures against COVID-19, the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs announces the changes for travel from Albania to several EU countries.
Based on the EU recommendation, the Belgian government has reintroduced restrictions on non-essential travel from the Western Balkans, including Albania, Serbia, Northern Macedonia, Kosovo, and Montenegro.
According to the recommendations, citizens of the Western Balkan countries can travel to Belgium:
- When they are provided with the vaccination certificate. Upon arrival in Belgium they undergo testing on the first or second and seventh day. If on day 7 the answer is again negative, the citizen comes out of quarantine.
- In the case of essential travel, they must have the travel confirmation from the Belgian embassy in Bulgaria (from this country the coverage is done for the countries of the Western Balkans). The application for PLF (Passenger Location Form), is done online, by sending the request to the embassy at the address: [email protected]
- Citizens over 12 years old must be equipped with PCR test of the last 72 hours and upon arrival in Belgium will be subject to quarantine.
