Other risks

Rabies is present in a small number of animals in Belgium. If you are bitten, seek medical advice immediately. For those at high risk, vaccination before arrival should be considered.

Health care

Medical care is expensive but of a very high standard. There is a reciprocal health agreement with the United Kingdom. It allows UK citizens a refund of up to 75 per cent of medical costs. To take advantage of the agreement, UK citizens should obtain form E111 from the post office before departure.
