The restriction on non-essential travel to and from Belgium has an official end date. In the new ministerial decree on the Corona measures that was published on Wednesday, it is stated that the travel ban will expire on April 19.
What do you have to take into account?
The travel ban will disappear, but those returning from a red zone must be tested and stay in quarantine for a period of at least 7 days. A PCR test is mandatory on day 1 and day 7. There is no exception for vaccinees.
What does this mean for the autonomous region of Valencia?
According to the official website of the Belgian government, all autonomous regions in Spain are color coded red. Except Galicia, Extremadura, Valencia and the Balearic Islands, these are color coded orange.
At the end of January, the Spanish government indicated that in all likelihood, tourists would not be welcome until the end of the summer. The borders of Spain are indeed open, but under certain conditions. For example, you must be able to present a negative PCR test with a maximum of 72 hours.
However, it is forbidden to travel between Spanish regions and for the time being there is a curfew from 10 pm to 6 am. Bars, restaurants and shops are open everywhere until 10 p.m. and wearing a mouth mask is mandatory everywhere.
