COVID-19

All summerschool participants are asked to confirm that they have read and understood the guidelines via their account in Mobility Online before the 30th of July.
The measures and the guidelines in this protocol can change at any time due to the evolution of the pandemic. Please keep an eye on our website for the latest updates.

​​Travelling to Antwerp

As of 1 July 2021 the European digital corona certificate will be in effect for travel within the EU. It will be issued to people who meet one of the following criteria:

  • being fully vaccinated and having received the last dose at least two weeks before travel
  • submitting a negative PCR test (<72 hours)
  • submitting a proof of infection and recovery

Participants arriving from a green or orange zone have no obligation to test.
Participants arriving from a red zone need to provide a valid digital corona certificate and are requested to upload a proof on Mobility Online. This also concerns Belgian residants who have travelled to a red zone prior to the summer school.

Participants arriving from outside the European Union must be fully vaccinated (+2 weeks) with a vaccine recognised by Europe and take a PCR test on the day of arrival. If this test is positive, the person needs to be quarantined. For a list of non-EU third countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted, please visit https://reopen.europa.eu/en/ and https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/colour-codes-by-country/.

Participants who have been in a very high-risk area (“variant of concern”) at any time during the past 14 days (dd. 28 June 20221) are not allowed to attend the summer school. The list of countries can be found here: https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/countries-with-high-risk/

Please note: the status of a zone can change at any time during your stay and these lists are regularly updated. It is the candidates’ responsibility to follow up the latest changes in this list. The University of Antwerp cannot be held responsible for any implications this might have on your participation.

All persons coming or returning to Belgium, or traveling through Belgium, must fill out a Passenger Locator Form in advance. A self-assessment tool is integrated into the Passenger Locator Form: https://travel.info-coronavirus.be/public-health-passenger-locator-form
