People who have not been fully vaccinated or who do not have a corona recovery certificate must be able to submit two negative tests from August 8 if they return to the Netherlands from a yellow EU country.

The cabinet announced this on Monday afternoon.

The two tests must be done in the country of origin.

This concerns a PCR test that was taken no more than 48 hours before departure and an antigen test that was taken no more than 24 hours before departure to the Netherlands.

Travel is of course only allowed if the result is negative.

In the case of air travel, this is checked by the airline.

People who drive to a 'yellow country' by car can also be checked on their return to the Netherlands.

Travelers who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from corona must also be able to demonstrate this via the CoronaCheck app.

From Tuesday, traveling to any EU country will no longer be discouraged and all countries in the European Union will receive a yellow or green travel advice.
