On the other hand the Belgian Government has introduced a traffic light system of high, medium and low-risk regions, as mentioned on the Belgian official website.

Belgium’s classification is updated every Sunday and is valid from the Monday immediately following.

It is based on the data and criteria communicated by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) every Thursday. Each country is given a colour code (red, orange, green).

The measures applicable to travel to Belgium depend on the colour code assigned to each country.

The country or region has to be classified “orange” or “green” for at least 14 days before being exempted from the requirements applied to “red” zones.
