Current situation in Singapore

MOH: COVID-19 Phase Advisory

Travelling to the Netherlands

The Dutch Ministry of Health currently classifies Singapore as a COVID ‘high risk area’.

As of 23 March, travellers to the Netherlands coming from within the EU or the Schengen area will no longer require a test, proof of recovery or proof of vaccination. The rules will also be lifted for nationals of EU countries travelling to the Netherlands from countries outside the EU and the Schengen area. Everyone travelling to the Netherlands is advised to do a self-test immediately after arrival and again on day 5.

Non-EU nationals remain subject to an EU entry ban. Exemptions apply in several cases, however, such as for people travelling from ‘safe’ countries, people who are vaccinated or who have recovered from coronavirus, and people travelling for certain purposes. As of 23 March coronavirus entry passes (1G, pre-admission testing) will no longer be required at any location. However, in many other European countries you still need a QR code to go to a restaurant, for example.

Use the checklist for (return) trips to the Netherlands for your preparation.

Regular visa requirements and border procedures do apply. Consult with your airline before you travel, as they may have implemented additional/new requirements for your flight.
