Extra documents for travelling

FOR TRAVELLING ABROAD from Belgium, extra documents may be required in these COVID-19 times:

  • Identity card or international passport. Do not forget to check their validity. If you have dual nationality, it is best to bring the passport of your second nationality in case this is requested for the country of destination.
  • A negative COVID-19 test certificate or quarantine (at your destination) is required for some countries. Check the measures for your destination in advance. You can have a COVID-19 test taken at Brussels Airport.
  • Some destination countries also require a hotel reservation or proof of accommodation. If this is the case, you will be asked to present this when checking in here in Belgium. Always keep this reservation of proof of accommodation close at hand and also bring a printed copy, if possible.
  • To facilitate professional travel: When travelling for professional purposes, you need a Business Travel Abroad (BTA) form. The employer needs to complete this BTA form before you travel. Before travelling back to Belgium, you must complete the Passenger Locator Form. If you indicate that you are “travelling for professional purposes”, you will be requested to fill in your BTA certificate number. For more information about this form and its advantages, please click here 
  • Documents required by the country of destination: check which travel restrictions apply, if any, and which conditions you have to meet in the country you are flying to.

We also recommend that you bring a printed copy of these documents as much as possible. This will speed up the check-in process, and will often prove useful at your destination.

vaccination certificate (or any other document confirming you received a vaccine) does not replace a negative PCR test. Be sure to check the specific measures for the country of destination.
