As of 22 March 2020 cross-border workers in vital sectors and with crucial occupations can use a vignette to cross the border between Belgium and the Netherlands more quickly. The purpose of the vignette is to prevent such cross-border workers from being held up at the border and it can only be used by them.
Since Wednesday, 18 March 2020 Belgium has banned non-essential journeys to other countries, including the Netherlands. Cross-border workers and other persons who need to travel across the border are still able to do so. However, they need to take specific rules into account.
The vignette can be obtained via the site www.crisiscentrum.be/nl.
