Covid measures

In the next few weeks new covid measures will apply in Belgium. Based on the new measures we will send you an e-mail about covid measures during Flanders Gravel. 

Since we are an outdoor event we don't expect too much extra measures.
 
For participants from outside of Belgium it's important to know Belgiums general entry requirements for tourists. Please check your ministry of foreign affairs to find out. In general it basically means you need a official proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative PCR test no older than 48 hours. 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

In Belgium it's now mandatory nationwide: anyone who wants to enter certain public spaces must be vaccinated, recovered or tested. Our permit - issued by the local goverment - obligates us to check on this at the registrations this means:

You need to be able to present a official international proof (on paper or QR-code) of vaccination or recovery. If you are neither vaccinated nor recovered, you will need to present a official negative test result. You can present a negative PCR test no more than 48 hours old, or a negative rapid antigen test that is a maximum of 24 hours old. Please check if there are additional measurements for traveling from your home country to Belgium at this moment.
