As of Friday November 6th at 4:00 PM, the Belgian Ministry of Foreign affairs has increased the number of red travel zones for Belgians and residents of Belgium. Under Belgium’s new Covid-19 testing strategy, travelers returning from those zones will only be tested if symptoms are being experienced.
With the exception of La Palma (green zone), all of Spain has become a red zone. La Palma is currently the only zone in the EU where Belgians can travel to without any additional coronavirus restrictions.
The regions of Oslo and of Viken in Norway have become red. In Sweden, the same applies to the regions of West Sweden and North Middle Sweden. Greece and Italy are red, both of which still had a several orange zones until last week. Latvia is now red as well.
In Germany, the regions of Upper Franconia, Middle Franconia, Brandenburg, Hanover, Lüneburg, Rheinhessen-Pfalz, Leipzig and Thuringia have been added. The same goes for the Réunion Island in France, the region of Zealand in Denmark, and the Highlands and Islands in Scotland.
All returning travelers need to complete a ‘self-assessment questionnaire’ about their travel and/or stay conditions abroad. Travelers returning from red areas have to complete the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) if they have stayed there for more than 48 hours.
