If, after having sent your PLF form, you receive a text message with instructions about a quarantine and COVID test, you must follow these closely.

Click on the country or region where you are staying to find out what the conditions are when you return to Belgium.

A transit of maximum 48h through a red zone is possible, regardless of the means of transport. If the point of derparture of the traveller lies in a green or an orange zone, a quarantine and test are not compulsory after arrivel in Belgium.
