The State Department has changed travel advice to Germany and the United States due to the growing corona epidemic in those countries. Germany’s color code ranges from green to yellow and the United States from yellow to orange.
People returning from Germany must show evidence that they have been vaccinated since Monday, tested negative or have recently recovered from the corona virus. This also applies to Hungary from September 6th. This rule applies to people traveling with a yellow code from all countries in the European Union.
The United States is moving from yellow to orange and is considered a very high risk area. Kosovo, Montenegro and the Republic of Northern Macedonia also go orange. From Saturday, people coming to the Netherlands will have to be isolated for ten days in these countries. From September 6, travelers from these countries will have to be tested, even if they have been fully vaccinated against the lung virus.
Viral different countries
The ministry said there were no longer any special rules for so-called virus variants. These countries, which have seen dangerous virus variants in many countries, now fall under the normal color codes. The color code for all of these countries is orange, but some countries are classified as high-risk areas and some as high-risk areas. As a result, corona activities for people coming to the Netherlands from these countries will no longer be the same for every country.
People traveling to the Netherlands from Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Suriname, Venezuela or South Africa must be isolated and tested before departure. Travelers from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru or Uruguay must show corona certification.
