Netherlands lifts travel restrictions due to Covid-19 – Business Traveler

The Dutch government has lifted the remaining Covid-19 entry restrictions for all incoming travellers, including unvaccinated visitors.

The new rules went into effect on September 17, with the government issuing the statement:

“The Government of the Netherlands has decided to lift the ban on entry to the European Union (EU) for the Netherlands as of September 17, 2022. Given the current epidemiological situation in the Netherlands, the Government considers that for the entry into the Netherlands the EU entry ban is no longer proportional.”

It is no longer necessary to present proof of vaccination, recovery or negative test to enter the country. This also applies to those from countries outside the EU/Schengen area.

The statement added:

“The European Commission also plans to publish a proposal to review the rules for entering the EU in autumn 2022.”

Meanwhile, Spain has eliminated the health control form that was previously necessary to enter the country.
