Travel advice and entry requirements

Due to COVID-19, the Dutch government has imposed restrictions on passengers travelling to the Netherlands from high-risk areas.

Please check if you’re travelling from a high-risk or a safe country on the website of the Dutch government. Countries that are not on the list of safe countries are considered high-risk areas. Keep in mind that the situation in a country can change quickly. Therefore, check the travel advice regularly.

Travel bans

Several countries, including the Netherlands, have issued an immediate travel ban for passengers travelling to or from certain countries. If there is a travel ban for your destination, we’ll send you a cancellation message or an e-mail with all entry requirements as soon as possible.
