Coronavirus: the validity period of sports and culture vouchers is again extended

Author: Anne Ghysels (Legal Expert)

The validity period of sports and culture vouchers has already been extended twice since the beginning of the health crisis.

The government has announced a further extension of this deadline to 30 September 2022.

This measure has not yet been published in the Belgian Official Gazette. So changes are still possible.
