Netherlands lifts quarantine requirement for U.S. travelers

The Netherlands has reversed a quarantine requirement for vaccinated travelers, saying that effective Sept. 22, vaccinated travelers from the U.S. and other “very high-risk areas” for Covid-19 no longer have to quarantine.

River cruise operators will benefit from the rule change, as they were modifying their schedules to avoid the quarantine requirements for cruisers embarking in Amsterdam, a popular departure port. Most river lines require that passengers and crew be vaccinated.

Europe travel

Travel Weekly is tracking the Covid-related entry requirements for destinations in Europe.

A statement from the Netherlands government said that as of Sept. 25, it would relax its five-foot distancing rule, which means that bars and restaurants can open to maximum capacity and events will again be allowed.

But simultaneously it will require patrons ages 13 and over to show proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative Covid test result taken less than 24 hours before entry, using the CoronaCheck Netherlands app to generate a health pass. Patrons ages 14 and over will have to show an ID along with their health pass.

The government encourages social distancing. Face masks must be worn on all commercial transport, including planes, trains, trams and metros.
