Passengers who fly to the Netherlands only to transfer to another international flight, do not need to show the result of a rapid test and will only need to present the results of an NAAT (PCR) test based on a sample collected no more than 72 hours before.

Travelers aged 13 and over from high-risk countries must be able to show the results of a negative NAAT (PCR) test based on a sample collected no more than 24 hours before boarding if they would like to travel without rapid test.

Or: they must present a negative rapid test result based on a sample collected no more than 24 hours prior to boarding and a negative NAAT (PCR) test result based on a sample collected no more than 72 hours earlier.

Instead of providing the results of a rapid test based on a sample collected no more than 24 hours prior to boarding, air crew can opt to present the results of a NAAT (PCR) test based on a sample collected no more than 72 hours before arrival.
