Passengers travelling to Belgium

All passengers travelling to and transiting on Belgian territory need to complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) regardless of their departure point and nationality. This is possible as from 48h before boarding their flight.

The PLF must be completed:

  • online, where you will obtain a QR code receipt to be presented at check-in and/or boarding
  • manually, to be filled out and handed over before boarding.
    Note: only people who are technically unable to fill in the electronic form will still be allowed to use the paper form.

Passengers failing to submit this form or providing misleading and incomplete information will be denied boarding.

Passengers arriving in Belgium without a valid QR-code (e-PLF) or a paper PLF might be fined EUR250

IMPORTANT: All non-essential travel to Belgium is temporarily prohibited for passengers coming from countries who are not part of the EU or the Schengen area. More information regarding non-essential travel can be found here.

Greece

Passengers flying from/via Belgium to Greece need to present a negative COVID-19 test dated less than 72 hours. This obligation does not apply to children younger than 10 years old. If you fail to comply with this regulation you will be denied boarding.

Italy

Passengers originating from or transiting through Belgium need to present to the carrier upon boarding the attestation of having undergone, in the 72 hours prior to entry into Italy, a molecular PCR or an Antigen COVID-19 test, with a negative result. Alternatively, they have the obligation to undergo a molecular PCR or Antigen test, to be carried upon arrival at the airport in Italy* (where possible) or within 48 hours of entering Italy at the local health company at your destination. While waiting to undergo the test at their destination, passengers will be subject to isolation at their home or residence.

* Passengers choosing to undergo a COVID-19 test upon arrival in Rome (Fiumicino Airport), must request the test in advance via this form.
