Covid Safe Ticket

Events organised by De Panne local authority will take place in accordance with applicable corona measures.

Specifically, that means guests must have their Covid Safe Tickets scanned at the entrance and show proof of identity at the same time. 

What is the Covid Safe Ticket?

Unlike the European corona certificate, which applies to travelling within the EU, the Covid Safe Ticket is specifically intended to give access  to events without you having to wear a face mask and mantain a distance of 1.5 metres. The CST is only valid in Belgium. 

The Covid Safe Ticket is identical to the European Corona certificate. You therefore need not apply for an additional document if you already have this certificate

On a technical level, the Covid Safe Ticket and the European corona certificate are identical. Both make use of a QR-code, which automatically appears on your smartphone via the CovidSafeBE app.

You can find more info about the Covid Safe Ticket at https://www.vlaanderen.be/cjm/nl/informatie-covid-19/covid-safe-ticket

Practical info:

Show your Covid Safe Ticket along with your proof of identity at the entrance to the event. The employees will scan your certificate and ask you to show your proof of identity. 

This applies to all events taking place in the tent on the beach:

  • and the entrepreneurs event on 14/9
  • the reception for residents & and holiday home owners on 18/9
  • the musical afternoon on 19/9 during the Weekend for Holiday Home Owners
  • the charity event on 21/9

Ensure you produce a valid COVID certificate at the entrance to the tent.

  • Do you not yet have a valid COVID certificate of vaccination (full vaccination + 2 weeks), or recovery (11 to 180 days after a positive test)? Then you can get a test certificate that is still valid for access to the event (valid for 48 hours after the sample was taken).
  • No rapid tests will be provided at the event.
  • Guests are not obliged to wear face masks in the tent.
  • You will need to show a valid certificate every day for multi-day events.

You should preferably use the COVIDsafe app ( COVIDsafe ), you can naturally also show a certificate printed on paper at the entrance.


Frequently asked questions

How is my Covid Safe Ticket checked?
