As of 23rd March 2022, all travelers from the EU and the UK, regardless of vaccination status, no longer need to take tests before traveling to Holland. 

The Netherlands was one of these countries in Europe that have introduced the strictest rules due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Apart from removing the requirement of pre-departure testing, travelers will also no longer need to submit a vaccination or recovery proof

Last month, the country's authorities also removed quarantine for travelers arriving from high-risk countries.

This month, the Netherlands has been relaxing coronavirus-related restrictions further.

The Dutch government, however, advises all travelers to self-test immediately upon arrival and again on Day 5 of their stay. 

Requirements remaining in place

Despite the relaxed entry rules, the Netherlands decided to remain the health declaration in place.

All travelers are still required to fill out the Passenger Locator Form

Since the seat number is necessary to complete the form, it should be submitted within 24 hours of arrival in the Netherlands. 

The form is required to be completed by every traveler entering the Netherlands by air aged 13 and older. Transit passengers need to complete the form too.
