Covid-19 / Corona information page

Het COVID certificate is used to allow large events such as the Gentleman's Fair to take place safely in Belgium. You can find it in the COVIDSafe app, on the digital channels or it was sent to you by post. 

Before you leave for Gentleman's Fair, make sure you have a valid COVID certificate.

  • Do you not yet have a valid COVID certificate of vaccination (full vaccination + 2 weeks) or recovery (11 to 180 days after the positive test)?
    Then you can porvide a test certificate yourself that is still valid upon entry to the event (validity of 48 hours from sample collection).
  • There are no quick tests at the event itself.

For the entire duration of Gentleman's Fair, keep your proof handy and follow the rules.

  • Keep your valid COVID certificate AND your identity card at hand during your visit to the fair. This way you can always prove that you meet the access conditions during an inspection..
  • As a visitor, you are not required to have a mouth mask in the exhibition hall, nor must you adhere to the distance rules. However, always adhere to the rules indicated by the organizer and local government on the way to, around AND on the site of the event.
  • For a multi-day event, you will have to be able to show a valid certificate every day.

What to bring?

Bring your valid entrance ticket, valid COVID certificate AND your identity card to the event.
You should preferably use the COVIDsafe app ( COVIDsafe ), but you may also bring this certificate printed on paper or as a download PDF.


The COVID certificate can be obtained free of charge for residents of Belgium.
A test that leads to a test certificate may incur a cost. The 2 free PCR tests provided for each citizen living in Belgium who has not yet had the chance to be fully vaccinated long enough can also be used for entry to such an event.


No certificate is required for minors under the age of 12.
