For flights chartered by a country other than Belgium within the framework of the European Union civil protection mechanism, kindly note that the number of places available for Belgian citizens is the exclusive jurisdiction of the State which chartered this flight. If there are not enough places to bring back all Belgians who wish to take this chartered flight, the priority is given to the most vulnerable compatriots (i.e. with serious health conditions) or those who travel with very young children.

Finally, Belgian expatriates all over the world share their advice and temporary solution on the #BelgesSolidaires Facebook group.
