1.Proof of vaccination and vaccine declaration form
2.Negative Covid Test – you’ll need either a negative PCR test result from less than 48 hours before departure or a negative antigen test result from less than 24 hours before.

Still have some questions?


I’m travelling from outside of the EU? What do I need to do to travel?

Please refer to your government’s website for travel information, test requirements and any other documentation or actions needed to enter Netherlands and return home with the relevant tests.


Do I need to be vaccinated?

Yes. Proof of full vaccination is currently required of residents travelling from very high-risk countries in order to enter the Netherlands.


Is this likely to change in the near future?

Travel restrictions are constantly under review by government authorities, on this basis there is no 100% guarantee. These set of exemption measures are however designed to support business and are in place to allow safe and managed entry to the Netherlands from all countries while there are still ongoing restrictions in place for non-essential travel.
Please check details relating to your country status and actions here


How do I get my COVID19 test sorted for returning home?

There are several test sites close to the Beurs van Berlage venue and within the city centre.
