    What is a Covid Safe Ticket (CST)?

    The CST is the variation of the European Covid certificate, intended for travel abroad. This same certificate is now used for access to certain events or places in the Brussels-Capital Region.

    It aims to check that the citizen is in possession of one of the following certificates :

    a vaccination certificate attesting a complete vaccination with a vaccine recognised by the European Union. A vaccination certificate is only valid from the 14th day after the last injection;

    a certificate of a negative PCR test carried out within 48 hours or an antigen test (rapid test) carried out within 24 hours. The antigenic tests must be carried out by a legally authorised person. Organisers may, but are not obliged to, offer these tests at the entrance;

    3° a certificate of recovery dating back no more than 180 days

       

    The certificates can be downloaded from the CovidSafe.be application or, in the case of vaccination certificates, sent by post by calling the call centre on 02/214.19.19. They contain a QR code that can be used to check the validity of the certificate.

    ! - a test centre /CST for PCR tests on Thursday, Friday, Saturday from 5 to 24H will be available for visitors and Brussels residents from 22 October to 31 December 2021 at Place Poelaert.

     

     

     

    A gradual recovery plan

    Since the beginning of the lockdown, there has been no shortage of ideas and visit.brussels decided to bring together several of the key players of business and leisure tourism in Brussels as well as international associations in order to collectively build the post-COVID-19 era. Thus, since the beginning of April 2020, hundreds of stakeholders have been regularly exchanging ideas with their peers, supporting each other and developing different scenarios for a recovery. The objective is to initiate the recovery collectively and in a spirit of solidarity. 

    The information sessions are held regularly. Their calendar and main themes are available here.
