Mouthguards are no longer needed on public transport and a club test is no longer required

As of today, it is no longer necessary to wear a mouth covering on public transport. It was one of the first corona measures to be introduced, and one of the last to be repealed.

As of today, it is no longer necessary to wear a face mask in taxis, buses and ferries. It remains mandatory at the airport and on the plane. But many Dutch airlines have already said they will not be active to make sure Whether passengers wear face masks on board.

Access test disappears

Also disappearing are check-ins for nightclubs and seatless events with more than 500 visitors. This means that there are no longer any locations in the Netherlands where you have to show your Corona ticket to enter. CoronaCheck may still be required for travel abroad.

For travelers to the Netherlands from EU and Schengen countries, the obligation to obtain a test certificate, refund or vaccination will also disappear from today. Travelers must complete a health clearance. This also applies to EU citizens who wish to travel to the Netherlands from outside the EU.

The EU entry ban is still in effect

Non-vaccinated citizens from outside the EU and the Schengen area are still not allowed to enter the EU. An exception to this rule applies to travelers from safe countries and sometimes also to travelers with a return certificate.

This recovery guide should no longer be issued on the basis of a positive PCR test. As of today, the Netherlands also accepts certificates of return issued on the basis of a positive antigen test.

Advice but no commitments

Many recommendations are still valid, but they are not obligations. Thus, the advice remains to be tested in case of complaints. Anyone who tests positive is expected to undergo isolation at home, just as now. But this is also not an obligation, as is the advice to quarantine in some cases if someone in the immediate vicinity has COVID-19.
