COVID 19 Special Statement

As of 18 December 2020, and in accordance with Belgian law and the SHAPE Chief of Staff Order dated 25 Nov 2020, students travelling to NSOS from certain regions and countries are required to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Belgium.

The SHAPE COS order requires quarantine from the red areas listed in the Belgian Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs website: https://diplomatie.belgium.be

As required, 48 hours prior to your arrival in Belgium, you have to fill out and submit the "Passenger Locator Form" (https://travel.info-coronavirus.be/public-health-passenger-locator-form). 

You will automatically receive a QR code as well as a text message with a "prescription code for corona testing." You don't have to get a doctor's prescription but instead, you show this text message at the Corona testing centre.

NSOS will continue to update this site with the most current information.
