Can I still travel to Belgium ?

No. Until 18 april 2021 non-essential trips in and out of Belgium are prohibited. Only essential travels are allowed (professional reasons, family reasons, humanitarian reasons, study-related travel, everyday life of border municipalities and border regions, care of animals, legal obligations, moving house). Anyone travelling to or from Belgium will be required to carry a sworn statement.
