Negative test result
You can only travel to the Netherlands if you have a negative test result (a NAAT(PCR) test max 48h before departure, or a rapid antigen test max 24h before departure). Where can I get a test result?
Urgent advice to everyone
Take a coronavirus self-test before meeting others or going back to work/school. Do you have symptoms? Then make a test appointment at the GGD immediately. Stay at home until you get the result.
Adhere to the corona measures

Frequently asked questions
Get tested at an official testing centre (such as a laboratory, doctor or health service) at your destination. Make sure the test meets the Dutch requirements.
Stay in your accommodation and avoid contact with others. You should also contact your local municipal health service (GGD) in the Netherlands and follow the measures and advice of the health authorities at your destination. The other members of your household and/or your travelling companions may also need to go into quarantine. If you no longer have any symptoms and you test negative for coronavirus you may return to the Netherlands.
Travelling abroad remains a risk. When you become infected abroad, you can infect others at home. This can also be another variant of the coronavirus. That is why it is mandatory to self-quarantine if you are returning to the Netherlands from a destination with a very high corona risk. After becoming infected with coronavirus it can take 10 days for symptoms to show. So it’s important to stay at home for 10 days. There are also people who have coronavirus without showing any symptoms at all. They could infect others if they don’t stay at home.
When you travel to a destination with a very high corona risk, you fill in the quarantine declaration before you travel back to the Netherlands. Even if you are covered by the exceptions, you fill in the quarantine declaration.
