the Hague

On the advice of RIVM, the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport has designated the United Kingdom, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar and Nepal as very high-risk areas. This is because of the worrying delta variant of the coronavirus that is circulating there.

As a result of this decision, a quarantine obligation will apply from Tuesday 15 June 00.01 for travelers traveling from these countries to the Netherlands. When traveling to our country, they must have a correct and fully completed quarantine statement. Travelers who do not comply with the quarantine obligation can receive a fine of 339 euros. Anyone who does not have a quarantine statement can be fined 95 euros.

Travelers by ship or plane

In addition, travelers traveling by ship or plane from these countries to the Netherlands must show the following tests:

  • a negative NAAT-PCR test of up to 72 hours old
  • and a negative rapid test of up to 24 hours old

Train and bus travelers or people traveling by car must show a mandatory negative NAAT-PCR test and are required to go into quarantine.

Exceptions

Truck drivers and other persons working in the transport of goods are exempt from the quarantine obligation, the NAAT-PCR test and the rapid test.

Travel remains a risk

Traveling is and remains a risk these days. Keep a close eye on the travel advice and the Wijsopreis.nl website for the latest developments. Only together can we get corona under control.
