Belgium is a beautiful country in Western Europe with a mesh of Dutch, French, and German influences due to its location. Cities – like its capital, Brussels – have medieval architecture and castles. Other cities tourists flock to include:

Bruges, where you can visit medieval buildings and historic churches; Antwerp, which has dozens of fine arts museums; and Ghent, which has a combination of 10th-century castles and churches with contemporary museums.


As a U.S. citizen, you can enter Belgium without proof of a negative Covid test. You will, however, need to complete a Passenger Locator Form before arriving in Belgium.

The form has questions about your location in the 14 days before arriving in the country. Regardless of your vaccination status, you will need to answer and submit the form.

Belgium does not currently have any curfews or moving restrictions in place. Like many places, you will need to wear a mask on public transportation.

Regions like Brussels, Flanders, and Wallonia may have their Covid-related requirements. And all regulations are subject to change without notice.

The country of Belgium has a Travel Advisory of Level 3, which recommends travelers reconsider their travel plans. Local governments have measures regarding strict sanitary conditions and the number of people allowed in a group.

For example, the maximum number of people allowed at a restaurant table is four, and tables must be at least 1.5 meters apart. Food and drink establishments need to limit the number of patrons permitted indoors, outdoors, and up to certain times.
