Belgium in Singapore

Welcome to our website!

Travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic 

In order to fight the importation and the continued spread of new variants of the virus, the Consultative Committee has decided to ban recreational / tourist trips to and from Belgium until 1 April 2021. Persons traveling to and from Belgium must fill in the Passenger Locator Form and be in possession of a sworn statement. As Singapore is on the European white list, travelers coming from Singapore do NOT need to take a Covid-test in order to travel to Belgium. However, be aware that some airline companies do require a test to let you onboard. Therefore, it is advised to double check with them prior to your departure.

Countries around the world are taking action to contain the Coronavirus and end the pandemic. Many have put in place mandatory quarantine measures or have closed their borders. As a result normal border crossing can no longer be guaranteed. Consequently, the risk that Belgian citizens get stuck in a foreign country is becoming a lot higher. We therefore advise against all travel abroad. You are recommended to keep an eye on this website for the latest updates regarding the Coronavirus in Singapore. We invite Belgians residing in Singapore/Brunei who are not registered at the Embassy yet to do so. Questions about the situation in Belgium? Click here.
