Thinking about travelling to the Netherlands during the corona virus outbreak?

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.

The Dutch borders are open for travellers from EU and Schengen area countries and, with residence permit or approval letter, travellers from many non EU countries. However, you and your possible relatives aged 13 and above will need to show a negative covid-19 test upon arrival in the Netherlands. The Dutch government provides information on the requirements for this test.

Moreover, and regardless of the test outcome, 10 days of self-quarantine are strongly recommended in many cases. You can check if this is the case for you with this quarantine travelcheck.

The quarantine period may be shorter. If you do a test on day 5 and the result is negative you may go outside again.

Can I come to the Netherlands with a short-stay tourist visa?

If you travel from within the EU this is possible. If you travel from a non EU country the answer to this question depends on the travel restrictions for the country you are travelling from.
