What has changed?

The practices and policies that have changed with the latest decision rolled out by the Dutch government included the following:

  • Travelers from countries that don’t belong to the Schengen Area and the EU had to present a certificate of vaccination/recovery so that they can be allowed to visit the Netherlands.
  • Travelers had to produce certificates that were subject to many criteria. These included the condition that
    • the last dosage of vaccine must be taken within the last 9 months or
    • the type of vaccine taken must be amongst those that have received the approval of the EMA (European Medicines Agency) or the WHO (World Health Organization).

What came along with the new step?

Scrapping the COVID-19 travel restrictions, the Dutch authorities laid focus on a proposal that the EU commission may soon bring out a proposal for the revision of the COVID-19 rules of entry into the EU Member States. The proposal for this revision will be published in Autumn 2022.

After the Netherlands lifted the travel restrictions, only Spain and Luxembourg are left to lift their COVID-related travel restrictions. Spain will keep the restrictions in place till November 15, 2022. As for Luxembourg, the restrictions will be in effect till the end of September 2022.
