After returning to the Netherlands, the urgent advice continues to apply for a ten-day quarantine. The boarding test does not replace this quarantine.
The measure has been in effect for citizens from countries outside the EU and the Schengen area since December 15. Starting today, all UK and South African passengers, including the Dutch, must comply with the regulations. The cabinet is now expanding this further to all flights to the Netherlands.
A designation requires airlines flying to the Netherlands to check passengers for a negative PCR test result before boarding. This must be done up to 72 hours before your planned arrival in the Netherlands. If someone does not have the negative test result, they are not allowed to come.
The government is looking into the possibility of introducing the aforementioned tightening of entry requirements for EU passengers traveling to the Netherlands on other forms of collective transport such as train, bus and ship.
