Starting on 22 December 2021 0:01 AM new rules will go into effect: travellers from outside the EU/Schengen area must always provide a negative test result to enter the Netherlands.
Travellers from very high-risk areas must always self-quarantine.
These rules also apply to travellers with proof of vaccination or proof of recovery, who were previously exempt from the mandatory quarantine.
Mandatory testing for all travellers from outside the EU/Schengen area
From 22 December 2021, travellers coming from countries outside the EU/Schengen area are only permitted to enter the Netherlands if they have a negative test result with them.
This includes travellers with proof of vaccination or proof of recovery.
The test results must be from either a NAAT (PCR) test performed no more than 48 hours before departure or an antigen test performed no more than 24 hours before departure.
Travellers from very high-risk areas must always self-quarantine
From 22 December 2021, travellers from very high-risk areas must self-quarantine for 10 days even if they have proof of vaccination or proof of recovery.
This quarantine period can be shortened if they get tested by the municipal health service (GGD) on day 5 of the quarantine and the result is negative.
Other exceptions to the mandatory quarantine and test requirements remain in effect.
