Travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic

We encourage you to first of all read our travel advice here (Dutch) or here (French).

Are you currently stranded abroad as a Belgian? We are doing everything we can to find a solution together with you. See here what you can do yourself: https://diplomatiebe.tappable.dev/coronavirus-nl

For further questions you can contact us by e-mail at kualalumpur@diplobel.fed.be or by phone at 012/267 31 12. Also keep an eye on our Facebook page.

As Minister Goffin remarked in his letter of 17 March, we are facing exceptional circumstances and sometimes some patience is needed. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Our team will do everything in its power to help you. By registering on Travellers-Online, you will be kept informed of possible options for returning to Belgium, including commercial flights.

For flights chartered by a country other than Belgium in the framework of the civil protection mechanism of the European Union, you should bear in mind that the number of seats available to Belgian citizens is the exclusive competence of the state that organised this flight. If there are not enough places to bring back all Belgians who wish to do so, priority will be given to the most vulnerable compatriots (health, serious illnesses) or those travelling with very young children.

If you have to stay abroad a bit longer than hoped for, know that in many countries there are Belgian expatriates who share useful tips or temporary solutions on the #BelgenVoorElkaar group.

Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Defense Philippe Goffin and United States Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium Ronald Gidwitz signed a “preclearance” agreement on Monday that will allow passengers boarding flights from Brussels Airport to the United States to clear U.S. customs and immigration prior to embarkation in Brussels, and to save time upon arrival. This agreement, which has been under discussion for several years, will help further strengthen the already substantial trade and investment between the two countries and promote Brussels Airport as a trans-Atlantic hub.

September 21 marks the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. Belgium is a founding member of the UN and the very first President of the General Assembly was Belgian Foreign Minister Paul-Henri Spaak. Faced with the challenges of our time, Belgium remains more than ever convinced of the importance of the role of the UN and multilateralism in the search for effective and harmonious solutions fostering peace and sustainable development. This commitment is also demonstrated by its mandate in the Security Council, where Belgium was elected for the 6th time.
