The Dutch government has taken a forward step to discard all the available COVID-related travel restrictions on September 19th, 2022 for all visitors coming to the Netherlands. Which includes non-European Union countries too.
The current rules that have been implied in EU nations were not proportional to that of the Netherlands. Keeping the present epidemiological situation into consideration, the Government of the Netherlands made a decision to lift the entry ban for EU countries.
The removal of restrictions is applied to all travelers that include visitors coming from Schengen area countries and outside EU countries.
Previously, travelers outside the EU and Schengen Area countries were supposed to provide vaccination and the recovery certificate to enter the Netherlands. Provided those certificates were supposed to undergo several criteria which are approved by WHO. And now they are no longer needed.
