Testing possibilities 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, visit the Bruges hospitals (AZ Sint-Lucas and AZ Sint-Jan). This is only possible on weekdays. One must register for this at the hospital reception desk. The cost of the PCR test is 55 euros.
  • For a quick antigen test, you can go to a local pharmacy.

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.
