Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Belgium in Belgrade

 

COVID update

UPDATE 10/09/2021:

Montenegro and Serbia have been removed from the EU white list of countries. As a consequence Montenegrin and Serbian nationals (without a recognized vaccination certificate cf. infra) will again require an ‘essential‘ reason to travel to Belgium. The corresponding ‘essential travel certificate', for which you should apply at this Embassy is therefore reintroduced for Montenegrin and Serbian nationals without Residency in Belgium/EU.

You must complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) within 48 hours before arriving in Belgium, even if you’re vaccinated.

If you have a vaccination certificate, you do not need an ‘essential reason’ to travel to Belgium nor an ‘essential travel certificate’. You need to get tested on day 1 or 2 of your arrival and quarantine until you receive a negative result.

If you don’t have a vaccination certificate:

  • You have to present an ‘essential travel certificate’.
  • You must do a PCR test maximum 72 hours before you are in Belgium. This test must be negative.
  • On arrival in Belgium you have to go into quarantine for 10 days with a test on day 1 and 7.
  • This quarantine can be shortened when you receive a negative result for the test on day 7.

 
IMPORTANT: As of 01/09/2021
, Belgium is recognizing certain foreign vaccination certificates, including the Serbian and Montenegrin vaccination certificates if the vaccination given is approved by the European Medicines Agency (AstraZeneca, Pifzer/BioNtech, Moderna, Janssen) or Covishield and your second and last injection was at least two weeks ago.

All relevant travel information is available (in NL, FR, DE, EN) on https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/travels

COVID-vaccination certificates

Belgians vaccinated in Serbia or Montenegro can – upon their request – register their vaccination in the Belgian Vaccinnet database. They should contact their doctor in Belgium. If the Belgian based upon the information in Vaccinnet can be considered to be fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency, the Belgian can obtain a Belgian/EU vaccination certificate through the MyHealth.Belgium portal.
