Travel restrictions in Belgium: what you should know for your business trips abroad

As a consequence to the improvement of the pandemic situation, several European Countries, including Belgium, have relaxed their covid-19 restrictions.

From May the 23rd, 2022, Belgium has lifted the majority of its travel restrictions. Nevertheless, entry requirements still apply to third Countries classified as very high risk. Moreover, the Government still recommends caution and social responsibility, following the appropriate health protocols when traveling.

To plan a business trip to Belgium, it is necessary to be informed about the current travel restrictions and to describe the regulations still in force to travellers.
