Belgium accepts UK’s COVID-19 vaccination

Belgium has begun to recognize COVID-19 vaccination certificates produced in England and Wales, which implies that any fully vaccinated travelers from these two nations carrying the document are able to enter Belgium without having to undergo a ten-day quarantine.

In a statement, Belgian health minister Frank Vandenbroucke said, “All the required changes to the scan-app and the backend to be able to read and authenticate certificates produced in England and Wales have been made.”

The team that built the Flemish health pass can now certify the NHS app, according to the health minister. Because Scotland and Northern Ireland already have their own vaccine certificates, which do not include a QR code, Belgium only recognizes the NHS vaccine certificate from England and Wales.

However, certain limitations on travel from the United Kingdom remain in force in Belgium, since even fully vaccinated passengers using the NHS app must take a COVID-19 test on their first or second day of arrival and be quarantined until the results are received. Quarantine restrictions still apply to persons who do not have a UK vaccination certificate.

 

Regardless of vaccination status, all travelers, including Britons and Welsh, must complete a Passenger Locator Form upon arrival.

EU nationals who have taken two doses of the vaccine, have recently recovered from the virus, or have tested negative for the illness will be granted a COVID-19 vaccination passport.

 

Belgium has documented 25,282 fatalities and 1,145,735 million Coronavirus positive cases since the epidemic began. It has recently seen an increase in infection rates among Moroccan nationals, who account for 7% of all infection rates.
