Coronavirus: impact on your international train travel

Update 13/10/2020, 9:20

At present and following the health crisis that we have known for several months, certain exceptional measures are still applicable when you want to take the train in Belgium and in our neighbouring countries.

For train journeys in Belgium, please read about the measures taken by SNCB (in French or Dutch) following the spread of coronavirus. Please note that wearing a mask is mandatory from the age of 12 years in all public transports in Belgium, including in stations, on platforms and on the trains.

Public Health Passenger Locator Form
From 1 August 2020, whoever travels to Belgium (or returns to Belgium after a stay abroad of several days) is obliged to fill in an identification form within 48 hours before arrival in Belgium. More info on measures related to Covid-19 in Belgium.
