Covid: stay safe while travelling abroad

Update 03/12/2021, 09:30

In order to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, special measures are applicable when you take the train in Belgium (details in French or Dutch) and in our neighbouring countries.

If you travel to another country, regularly check the recommendations of the Belgian authorities and the updated rules for your country of destination. If you travel to Belgium (or return to Belgium after a stay of min. 48 hours), you must fill in the Passenger Locator Form within 48 hours before arrival in Belgium. After submitting this form you will receive instructions depending on the colour code of the country where you are arriving from and whether you have a valid Covid certificate (vaccination, test or recovery certificate) or not.

If you need to take a PCR test on arrival in Belgium, a test center is accessible at Brussels-Midi station (Avenue Fonsny 47b, 1060 Brussels) and Antwerp-Central station (main hall).

Thalys, TGV and Eurostar have eased the exchange or refund conditions of their tickets. Read the specific measures about international rail travel below (permanent updates).
