The Dutch government has lifted all COVID-related entry requirements for those traveling to the country.

Key Points:

  • As of Sept. 17, individuals traveling to the Netherlands no longer face COVID-related entry requirements.
  • Dutch authorities no longer require travelers to have proof of COVID-19 vaccination or recovery certificates when entering the country or test for COVID-19 before or after arrival.

Additional Information: In case of new virus variant, an “emergency brake” can be applied to the lifting of entry requirements. More information regarding the Netherland’s decision to lift entry requirements is available here.
