Since September 4, the United States, Israel, Kosovo, Montenegro and northern Macedonia have been identified as high-risk areas. The EU entry ban will apply again. Travelers from these areas can only enter the Netherlands if they have been fully vaccinated or are subject to a regulation other than the EU entry ban. They must comply with the mandatory 10-day isolation from September 4th. From September 6 they will only be allowed to travel to the Netherlands with a negative test certificate. Certificate of recovery or proof of full vaccination will no longer be sufficient, ”the national government said.
In definite terms, it states: “If you are traveling from the United States to the Netherlands, you must submit a NAAT / PCR test 48 hours prior to departure for the Netherlands or an antigen test no later than 24 hours. Old before departure. Even if you have been vaccinated. Exemption is available for those up to 11 years of age and those subject to the test. After staying in the United States, you must stay in (domestic) isolation for 10 days when you return to the Netherlands. Even if you have a vaccination certificate or recovery certificate you must submit a negative test result and you must go for (home) isolation. “
Earlier this week, the European Union decided to remove the United States from the list of safest countries. Partly because of the increasing number of infections and hospitals there, but also the revenge for the fact that Europeans are not yet welcomed in the United States seems to be behind the scenes.
The duty of testing and isolation does not preclude the transfer of passengers to Schiphol for another flight.
