The Dutch government has lifted its remaining Covid-19 entry restrictions for all incoming travellers, including unvaccinated visitors.

The new rules came into effect on September 17, with the government releasing the statement:

“The Government of the Netherlands has decided to lift the European Union (EU) entry ban for the Netherlands as of 17 September 2022. Given the current epidemiological situation in the Netherlands, the Government feels that for entry to the Netherlands the EU entry ban is no longer proportional.”

It is no longer necessary to provide proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test to enter the country. This also applies to those from countries outside the EU/Schengen area.

The statement added:

“The European Commission is also planning to publish a proposal for revising the rules for entering the EU in autumn 2022.”

Meanwhile, Spain has removed the health control form which was previously necessary to enter the country.
