The Belgium health declaration form acts in different ways, all to help manage the current coronavirus pandemic.
Health screening passengers
One of the main purposes of the PLF is to health screen passengers coming into Belgium.
The form is a declaration that you are following the country’s current travel requirements, by holding the necessary certificate(s).
The documents you need depend on what country you are traveling from. The Belgian government has categorized each region into zones of green, orange, red, and very high-risk.
Track and trace cases
Another important function of the Passenger Locator Form for Belgium is to track and trace positive COVID-19 cases.
By providing your contact details, you give health authorities a direct way to communicate with you. This way, if you have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for the virus, officials can contact you as quickly as possible.
