Do I need a visa for Belgium?
No – if you’re a British citizen travelling to Belgium with a valid passport then you won’t need to apply for a visa.
Healthcare in Belgium
British citizens should have their free EHIC or GHIC, which can be used in Belgium. This will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public healthcare centres or hospitals on your trip. However, it’s important to remember to still have travel insurance to be able to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the EHIC/GHIC might not cover, including repatriation costs. You can find more information about healthcare in Belgium here.
If you have pre-existing medical conditions you must declare these before you buy your policy to ensure you’re fully covered.
