The commitment goes into effect on December 29th and applies to most countries as the vast majority of the world is classified as an area of risk by the State Department.
The requirement was set earlier this week for travelers from the UK and South Africa due to a mutated variant of the corona virus circulating there and now applies to the rest of the world. “It cannot be ruled out that a virus similar to the UK and South Africa will be found in other countries,” says De Jonge.
It is up to the airlines to check people for the test statement before boarding. Nobody is allowed on board without an explanation. Samples are carried out in the Netherlands.
According to De Jonge, the cabinet is still working on a separate measure to oblige train and bus travelers from abroad to submit a negative test.
