China News Service, July 5th, according to the website of the Chinese Embassy in Belgium, recently, many Chinese citizens have chosen to return home via the Brussels International Airport in Belgium. The Chinese Embassy in Belgium reminds Chinese citizens that the current global epidemic situation is still developing. If necessary, avoid long-distance travel. If you really need to transfer back to your country via Belgium, please note the following:
(1) The transfer time in Belgium cannot exceed 24 hours, and the international transfer area of the airport cannot be obtained. If the transit time exceeds 24 hours, it will be refused to transit as required, resulting in detention or even repatriation to the place of departure.
(2) According to local regulations, if there are two or more Schengen countries in transit, including Belgium, they must take the transit passage within the Schengen area. However, at present, Belgium has not yet liberalized the entry restrictions for Chinese citizens. Without a long-term residence permit, Chinese citizens cannot enter the country even if they hold a valid Schengen visa, and thus cannot pass through transit channels within the Schengen area, resulting in detention or even repatriation to the place of departure.
(3) At present, Hainan Airlines is flying the route from Brussels to Xi'an (every Tuesday, there may be adjustments in the near future). Ticket sales are all in the direct sales mode. Please use Hainan Airlines Customer Service Center, official website, mobile APP and Brussels service To buy tickets from other channels. When purchasing tickets, be sure to carefully check the booking information, arrange the transfer time reasonably, and ask the carrier airlines for the requirements of connecting tickets, baggage check-in, boarding, etc., so as not to encounter problems during the transfer.
(4) According to the requirements of the relevant domestic departments, Chinese citizens from 27 countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, and Italy must present a health code that meets the flight requirements when transferring in Belgium. Please fill in the health code information at least 14 days before the flight. Passengers who fail to fill in the information as required will not be able to board the flight. Filling in false information may lead to a hindered journey and must bear legal responsibility.
