New rules for passengers travelling to Belgium, France and the UK are set to come into effect this week. Please read the following details and pass them on to your customers and clients where necessary.
CHANGES TO BELGIUM TRAVEL RULES FROM 26 NOVEMBER
The following quarantine rules will apply to passengers from Friday 26 November 2021.
Passengers with proof of a negative pre-travel COVID test don’t need to quarantine if they can prove they’ve taken a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours before arrival, or a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) taken the day before or on the day of travel.
Passengers without proof of a negative pre-travel COVID test must take a PCR or RAT test on day 1 or 2 following their arrival in Belgium. They must self-isolate until they get a negative result. They’ll also need to take a second test on day 7.
- Passengers staying in Belgium for less than 48 hours or returning after less than 48 hours away do not need to self-isolate on arrival.
CHANGES TO FRENCH TRAVEL RULES FOR UNVACCINATED CUSTOMERS
Unvaccinated passengers will no longer be asked to take a free antigen test on arrival at Paris Gare du Nord.
However, they will still need to complete mandatory forms before departure, take a negative pre-travel COVID test and self-isolate on arrival.
CHANGES TO TRAVEL RULES FOR CHILDREN TRAVELLING TO THE UK
All passengers aged 17 and under are now subject to the same travel restrictions as fully vaccinated passengers when travelling to the UK.
