Travel to Belgium
A. GENERAL RULE
Canada is currently considered as an “orange zone” by Belgium.
- Belgian citizens;
- Citizens of the European Union or of the Schengen area;
- Persons who have their main residence in Belgium, the European Union or the Schengen area;
- Canadian citizens or non-European residents of Canada
may travel to Belgium, regardless of the reason for travel.
Access to our territory is conditional upon the usual entry requirements as well as additional formalities specific to travel during the COVID-19 pandemic (see below).
Travelers subject to Schengen visas must apply for a short-stay visa in accordance with the instructions available on our website.
Please note: Schengen visas are not required for Canadian citizens for a stay of less than 90 days.
C. SPECIAL MEASURES
Passenger Locator Form: Every person travelling from Canada must complete a 'Passenger Locator Form' (PLF) within 48 hours before arrival;
Quarantine: You may be subject to a 10-day quarantine depending on your answers to the PLF;
Entry measures and travel conditions: Updated information on travel restrictions and health measures in Belgium is available on www.info-coronavirus.be
Advice: Check the specific health measures put in place by your airline. In case of transit, make sure to respect the measures of the transit country in addition to the Belgian measures.
Notice to all passengers
The Consulate General of Belgium in Montreal is not responsible for granting access to Belgium's territory, which is a prerogative of the Belgian Border control. Border Control always keeps the ultimate right to let any traveler enter Belgium or not.
All passengers must be able to show to both the airline and border control that they meet the entry requirements of the Schengen Area.
