Relaxations from 26 June 2021. THE NEW measures are to be applied nationwide.

General:

  • Restrictions on number of visitors at home and group size lifted. There will no longer be a restriction on the number of visitors people can receive at home. The same applies to the number of people who can form a group, for example in a park or restaurant.
  • Face mask requirement dropped in most situations. The requirement to wear a face mask will no longer apply in most situations. It will continue to apply only in situations where staying 1.5 apart is impossible. For example on public transport, on aeroplanes and other forms of passenger transport, at stations and airports, and in secondary schools. Passengers who do not wear a face mask can be fined €95.
  • More scope for working at the office. From 26 June employees who currently work from home can, in consultation with their employer, work up to half of their hours at the office. People must stay 1.5 metres apart in offices at all times, including in lifts and cafeterias. The government is calling on people to travel to work outside peak hours as far as possible.
  • Restaurants, cafés and bars are open, events are permitted with 1.5-metre distancing subject to conditions
    Restaurants, cafés and bars have to close at midnight . Certain conditions still apply at indoor and outdoor locations. Everyone must have an assigned seat, 1.5 metres apart. This means that in theatres, for example, not all seats can be used and that in restaurants tables and chairs must be positioned a safe distance apart. Registration and a health check are mandatory. At locations where people move around, like shops and museums, the maximum capacity is 1 person per 5 square metres. Dance venues, such as nightclubs and discos are closed.
  • Sports and 1.5-metre distancing
    Amateur sports matches and competitions can be held for all ages from 26 June. Spectators are permitted, but they must stay 1.5 metres apart.

The ban on the sale of alcohol after 22.00 will be lifted on 26 June. The ban on drinking alcohol or having it on your person in public spaces after 22.00 will also be lifted. The urgent advice not to sing, shout or play wind instruments in groups will also no longer apply.

 

Flight ban

As of 1 June 2021 there is no longer a ban on passenger flights from India, South Africa and countries in Central and South America. However, you should check other points if you do wish to travel or return to the Netherlands.

Negative rapid test result required

If you are travelling to the Netherlands by aircraft or ship from a high-risk country, you must take a rapid test shortly before departure, unless you can present a negative NAAT test result, based on a sample collected no more than 24 hours before boarding. Certain exemptions apply, including for diplomats. The rapid test must meet certain requirements.

People travelling abroad from the Netherlands in July and August can get tested for free. These free tests are intended for people who are not yet fully vaccinated and are required to show a negative test result before travelling abroad.

Self-quarantine

You must self-quarantine for 10 days upon arriving in the Netherlands. You can get tested again on day 5 after your arrival. If the result is negative you can end your self-quarantine. To prepare for your journey to the Netherlands do the Quarantine Check for Travellers. This is a practical checklist of steps to take before and after your journey. You should travel only if your journey is essential.

Covid-19 FAQ

I am worried about my health. What should I do?

If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.

Can I still go grocery shopping or walk my dog?

If you don’t have any symptoms, you can go and do some grocery shopping or walk your dog. If you keep an arm’s length away from others, the chance that others will infect you with COVID-19 or that you will infect others is small. If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.

Can I use public transport?

Only use public transport if there is no alternative. Avoid rush hours and keep as far apart as possible.
From June 1 wearing a non-medical face mask will be compulsory when travelling on public transport.

Is it safe to travel abroad?

For current travel advice, please visit the website of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

For more information about travelling by plane, visit the website of Schiphol Airport.

Which additional housekeeping measures do we take?

We made some adjustments to our housekeeping protocol to ensure both your health and safety as well as that of our cleaners. From now on all employees clean the apartments wearing gloves and replace them after finishing each apartment. Also, we ask our housekeeping team to keep a distance of 1.5 meters from residents and colleagues. This means that our staff may ask you to move to another room of the apartment while cleaning. If you stay in one of our studio’s our Service Desk will contact you to make other arrangements.

If you do not want your apartment cleaned due to distance measures please contact our Service Desk and we will make a new appointment.

If you are not feeling well, your apartment will not be cleaned. Please contact our Service Desk to make other arrangements. If possible our staff can provide fresh towels and linen.
