Coronavirus / COVID-19 update

Welcome to everyone wishing and able to visit our city! In Bruges, we will welcome you safely and with open arms. Before you leave, please consult this overview where you will find the most important government guidelines relating to travel.

UPDATE 08/03/2022

Local Covid measures

Currently code yellow is applicable in Belgium. This means that almost all Corona measures are cancelled.

A Covid Save Ticket (CST) is no longer required. Wearing a mouth mask is only compulsory when using public transport (buses of De Lijn) but is still recommended in places where the distance of 1.5 metres cannot be guaranteed.

 

Testing facilities in Bruges

If you are staying in Belgium and have to be tested before returning home, according to the guidelines of your home country, you can do so in Bruges:

  • For a PCR test, go to the "Test and vaccination centre Bruges" in B-Park (Blankenbergsesteenweg 420, Bruges). Open from 9.00 to 12.30 and from 13.00 to 17.00, 7 days a week. This is only possible if you request a CTCP code in advance via Mijngezondheid.belgie.be. A PCR test costs 55€ and can be paid on site at the test centre. You will receive your test result within 24 hours.
  • For an antigen test, contact the following pharmacists. The pharmacist will prepare a Corona Test Prescription Code (CTCP). After the test you will receive the code by SMS. Price: from 26,7€ (variable). You will receive the test result within 2 to 4 hours.

Foreign travellers can request the test result in the app CovidSafeBE or via mijngezondheid.belgie.be in the form of an encrypted QR-code (the European Corona Certificate). For this you need your CTCP code and telephone number. You will not be asked for an ID.
