Limited changes in travel advice despite increasing infections

the Hague

This week, no travel advice within Europe will change from orange (only necessary trips) to yellow (note, there are risks) or from yellow to orange. Due to an increase in the contamination figures, RIVM closely monitors the situation in Luxembourg and in the Azores in Portugal and Crete in Greece: these destinations have a yellow travel advice.

According to the RIVM, many European countries are experiencing a growth in infections. It is not only the number of infections that is important: trends in this, the percentage of positive tests and the number of travelers who return infected are also taken into account.

Malta’s travel advice will change from green to yellow on July 22: there is an increase in infections, but travel remains possible and entry rules apply.

Outside EU

The Netherlands bases its travel advice outside the EU on the list of corona-safe countries and areas of the European Union. The list is expanded to include Ukraine. If Ukraine does not have an entry ban for travelers from the Netherlands, the travel advice will change from orange to yellow on July 22. But please note, even then there may be entry restrictions and the EU digital corona certificate (DCC) is not accepted outside the EU.

Rwanda and Thailand are being removed from the EU’s covid safe list, making them high-risk areas. The British Virgin Islands are becoming a very high-risk area. The corona figures give reason for this. For destinations outside the EU that are not on the EU covid safe list, only necessary travel applies.
