Travel is permitted, but under certain conditions.
LThe regions of Southern Denmark, the Ionian Islands (Greece), Ceuta (Spain), the Azores (Portugal) and the Principality of Andorra will, from Wednesday, again be colored red on the map of travel destinations that the FPS Foreign Affairs updates every Sunday on the basis of data and criteria from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
For Wednesday, June 9, almost all the countries of the European Union and the Schengen area will have a code either red or orange.
Only certain regions of Europe are spared and pass in green code such as Greenland and the Faroe Islands (Denmark), Molise (Italy), several Finnish regions (Åland, Western Finland, Eastern and Southern Finland), the Subcarpathian and Lubusz regions in Poland, north-east and south-west Romania as well as San Marino. Malta and Iceland were already, and remain, in Code Green.
The updating of the color codes also saw Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Monaco and the Vatican go entirely orange. As recently as last week, this only concerned a few regions of these countries.
For countries outside the European Union and the Schengen area, not much changes: the red code is generalized everywhere with the exception of Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, Israel and South Korea which are in code green, and Thailand, which is in code orange (it will nevertheless switch to code red on June 9).
What this changes:
If you have stayed abroad for more than 48 hours or you are returning by plane or boat or you are returning to Belgium by train or bus from a country outside the EU or the Schengen zone, you must complete the Passenger Location Form (PLF) 48 hours before your arrival in Belgium at the earliest.
Based on your answers, the form will calculate if you are a high risk contact.
From July 1, all European citizens will be able to move within the European Union thanks to the European digital covid certificate. It will be used to prove that you are vaccinated, that your test is negative or that you have recovered from the coronavirus. In addition to this certificate which will allow free and safe travel during the summer, the Consultative Committee has set new modalities concerning quarantines.
