Currently those coming to Belgium or returning here from a trip abroad are able to choose whether to fill in the PFL online or on paper. Although the form will only be available online from Friday those that have filled it in will still be able to print out their PLF QR code if they so wish.
Measures will be taken to ensure those not used to filling in forms online will be able to fill in the digital PLF form. Airlines, rail companies (Thalys, Eurostar,..) and tour operators will offer assistance where required. The ministerial decree provides for a transitional period of two weeks.
The decree also contains the other measures that were agreed at the last meeting of the Consultative Committee. These include the new rules on face coverings, the Covid Safe Ticket, and the long-awaited reopening of the country’s discotheques. The measures contained in the decree are applicable until 31 October.
