Update 01.02.2021: In addition to the Passenger Locator Form, a sworn statement is required in Belgium. Moreover, there is now also an online entry declaration in Portugal and Switzerland available.
Business trips are associated with special difficulties in times of COVID-19. This does not only apply to the practical problems of implementation, for example due to restricted travel options or special regulations for entry and quarantine. One special regulation that many countries have adapted is an entry declaration prior to travel. In our blog, we summarise all entry notifications clearly for you. Here you can directly access the pages of the respective local authorities under which you have to register before entry.
As a rule, pre-registration is possible 48 hours before entry. It is either an online form or a self-declaration. Sometimes a QR code is generated which you have to show at the border or on entry, or you receive a confirmation in a PDF document, for example, which you have to carry with you on entry. Often, entry without prior notification is not possible or is associated with fines.
