Coronavirus COVID-19: the latest measures adopted in Belgium

In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Belgian government had to take some measures. Thankfully, the indicators (decrease in daily hospital admissions, flattening of the curve linked to the virus...) are showing positive results at the moment. Belgium can therefore gradually ease some of the restrictions in place. 

While we will do our best to keep the following information up to date, please keep in mind things can sometimes change remarkably fast. We recommend you also get in touch with the appropriate contacts concerning your planned trip or event and check the latest information on

Belgium will, step by step, stat de-confining. Good news:

Cafés, bars and restaurants are reopening
Some of the tourist attractions also have reopened their doors to the public
Outdoor sports activities are allowed again 

Some rules remain in place:

  • limiting contact between individuals
  • respecting recommended social distances
  • implementing simple protective gestures (washing hands regularly, etc...)

The covering of mouth and nose still forms part of good practice during this de-confinement phase. This can be done with a so-called comfort mask or an alternative means of protection such as a scarf or a bandana. This is:

  • strongly recommended in public places;
  • compulsory on public transport from the age of 12. 

Together with the local authorities and our tourism partners, we thank you for your patience and look forward to welcoming you back in our delightful part of the world soon.
