Can I travel to the Netherlands during the corona outbreak?

Yes and no. You will find a current overview of the possibilities on this site. The situation may change, so please do keep an eye on the current situation.

Travellers from most EU and Schengen area countries are welcome to the Netherlands. However, in some cases the strong recommendation for self-quarantine may be applicable. This is always the case if you travel from a medium or high risk area.

Non EU citizens are welcome if you have a valid entry visa MVV, a valid residence permit or an approval letter from the Dutch immigration authorities. Travellers from most non EU countries get the strong recommendation to self-isolate. Read about your immigration procedure here.
