As from 22 December onwards all travelers must show a negative COVID-19 test result if they are travelling to or returning to the Netherlands from outside the EU/Schengen, including those who are fully vaccinated or recovered. This also applies to travelers from high-risk countries and countries that are on the EU Safe Country List.
