Negative COVID-19 test mandatory for passengers from 29 December 2020
From 29 December 2020 all passengers flying to The Netherlands from a high-risk area, including Dutch nationals, must have a recent negative PCR test declaration in order to board an aircraft. Everyone arriving in the Netherlands is strongly advised to self-quarantine for a period of 10 days.
Since the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has classified all countries as a high-risk area, this basically means that if you’re flying to The Netherlands you must show this negative test declaration COVID-19 and the negative result of your PCR test when boarding the aircraft, or when requested to do so by airport staff or the designated (medical) authority, such as the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee.
Otherwise, you may be denied entry to the Netherlands. Keep in mind that this test must be carried out no more than 72 hours before arrival.
