Border Control

  • Keep your travel documents at hand
  • No automatic border control

Border Control at Departure

If you leave for a non-Schengen destination, you always fly from Gates B during this period. This also means that you have to go through border control. Border control follows just after security screening. Make sure you have all your travel documents at hand.


Currently, it is not possible to use the automated border control gates. Every passenger who travels from Pier B (non- Schengen destinations) will have to pass through the manned border control.

As in all other locations, you must keep a 1.5-meter distance from others while waiting. While queuing, wearing a mouth mask in the airport remains strongly recommended even though it is no longer mandatory in the airport. Only when it is your turn at the border control you may take off your mask. This way, the police officer can thoroughly check your identity card or passport. As soon as the check has been completed, you will have to put your face mask back on.

General information about the border control is available on 

Border Control at Arrival

Step by step closer to Belgium.

Coming from a non-Schengen country, you then go through border control first. Here only the manned counters are open. For hygiene reasons, automated border control gates are not available. The officer at the counter will ask you to briefly take off your face mask.

In the baggage reclaim hall, floor stickers and markings will help you keep enough distance. In the meantime, we take care of a maximum spread of flights over the baggage carousels so that keeping a safe physical distance becomes easier. Luggage trolleys are still available to transport your luggage and are, of course, thoroughly disinfected on a regular basis.
