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.
