Requirements for Entry into Belgium from Malta
Latest Update: Malta classified as a Red Country and restrictions on passengers travelling to Brussels are tightened.
Testing and Quarantine
Vaccinated or recovered passengers travelling to Belgium from Malta who are in possession of a valid vaccination or recovery certificate do not need to get tested or quarantine.
Passengers who are not vaccinated or recovered must present a negative certificate of a PCR test taken less than 72 hours before arrival or a Rapid Antigen test the day before arrival or the day of arrival. A RAT test is only valid the day of testing and the day after testing. On arrival in Belgium you do not have to go into quarantine but you must get tested again on day 7.
Passengers who are not vaccinated or recovered who do not present a negative certificate of a PCR test must get tested on day 1 or 2 after their arrival in Belgium. If the test result is negative, the quarantine period may be ended as soon as the result is received. A second test must then be taken on day 7. If any of these tests is positive, an isolation of 10 days must be observed.
Stricter rules apply to passengers travelling to Brussels: All travellers entering Brussels from a red area who are not in possession of an EUDCC with a vaccination or recovery certificate must get tested on day 1 and 7 following their arrival and observe a mandatory quarantine of 10 days. The quarantine can be shorted if the result of the test taken on day 7 after arrival is negative.
Children under the age of 12 do not have to get tested, but will be quarantined when the parents are tested, pending the test results.
Forms and Declarations
You are required to fill in an online passenger locator form up to 48 hours prior to your departure.
Based on your answers, you will receive a text message if you are considered ‘high risk’, in which case you will need to quarantine for 10 days and take a Covid-19 test. If you do not receive a text message after completing the form, you do not need to quarantine.
