Flight ban lifted and mandatory quarantine
Starting Tuesday 1 June 2021 the ban on passenger flights from the following countries has been lifted:
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, India, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, South Africa, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.
For travelers from very high risk areas (at this moment these are: Argentina, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, French Guyana, Guyana, India, Lithuania, Maldives, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Seychelles, South Africa, Suriname, Sweden, Uruguay and Venezuela) it is now mandatory to self-quarantine. This means that these travelers need to self-quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in the Netherlands. These 10 days can be shortened when having a negative test result of a COVID-19 test done on or after day 5 of the self-quarantine. Violating the mandatory quarantine can result in a fine of € 339.
For travelers from other high risk areas the Dutch government still strongly advises to also adhere to these quarantine measures.
