Travelling to Estonia from Belgium and Luxembourg

Anyone arriving in Estonia who began their journey from or transited through a country which is considered a coronavirus risk country is subject of restriction on freedom of movement.

Restriction on freedom of movement means that the individual is obligated to refrain from unnecessary contacts for 10 days from their arrival in Estonia and is allowed to leave their place of residence or accommodation only for seeing a doctor, shopping for food, essentials and medicines, and in emergencies.

From 1 September, those returning to Estonia from COVID-19 risk countries will have the opportunity to be tested for coronavirus at the airport and port in order to shorten the 10-day restriction. A passenger has to be tested upon his/her arrival in Estonia and re-tested 7 days after. If the first test is negative, the person can go to work, but still has to avoid unnecessary contact with other people. If also the 2nd test is negative, the person can continue his/her normal everyday life.

Based on the coronavirus infection rate the two-week self-isolation period or testing is mandatory for people arriving in Estonia from Belgium (during the period from 30 November to 06 December 2020).

Self-isolation or testing is also mandatory for people arriving in Estonia from Luxembourg (arrival during the period from 30 November to 06 December 2020).

Coronavirus infection rate list is available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Estonia an it is updated every Friday. Updates will take force the following Monday.
