Carnival holidays: reinforced border controls to deter travelers who intend to defy the ban
“ If the no one was honest, they are asked to turn around. But we can’t guarantee that no one gets through “, recognizes the police.
On January 22, the consultative committee announced the ban on non-essential travel until March 1. To avoid a legal vacuum, the measure was quietly extended until April 1. Essential trips remain authorized, provided they present the passenger tracking form and a declaration on their honor specifying the reason for their trip. Tourism is not one of them. “We have reinforced the system for the Carnival holidays”, warns the spokesperson of Annelies Verlinden, Minister of the Interior.
