Employees who have to cross the French border must have a certificate. We have already mentioned this in a previous Infoflash. This certificate is extended to all Belgian borders.
Certificate to cross the border
The certificate to cross the border now also exists in English.
With this certificate, the employer confirms the employee’s need to cross the border for work. It only needs to be completed once and remains valid during the crisis period.
As a reminder, professional travel should be strictly limited to essential travel. You will find the rules applicable to professional travel here.
Belgian-Dutch border: vignette for vital sectors and crucial professions
In order not to delay employees in a crucial profession or in a vital sector, the authorities have introduced a vignette to cross the Belgian-Dutch border. This will enable employees in these sectors to quickly pass border controls aimed at preventing non-essential journeys. You will find the vignette for printing here.
Employees who do not belong to these sectors will have to pass controls and show the certificate referred to above. They are not allowed to cross the border if they are travelling from a point of departure to a point of arrival both within the Netherlands. Employees in vital sectors and crucial professions are allowed to do so if they have the vignette.
Travel within Belgium
As we mentioned, no certificate is required for employees who go to work without crossing a border. If your employee nevertheless wishes to be in possession of a document, we offer you this model document that your employee can print or copy.
