Who would have expected this in these times of the corona crisis? The government has relaxed travel advice to more European countries before, as long as travelers take into account any safety risks. From today 15 June it is again possible to go on holiday to various countries within the European Union or the Schengen zone. For many countries, the travel advice was 'code' orange, (holiday travel not recommended) and has now changed to 'code' yellow (holiday travel possible, watch out for risks). 

As of today, June 15, according to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (the advice can be adjusted daily) travel to the following countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Estonia, France, Iceland, Italy, Croatia, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Monaco, Poland, Portugal , Czech Republic, and Switzerland. Until now, travel to Sweden and the United Kingdom is not recommended, if you do go you will be advised to return to your home quarantine for 14 days. The borders of Denmark are expected to remain closed to Dutch tourists this summer and therefore on 'code' orange.

Minister Blok: 'Celebrating holidays abroad, it is possible again. But it doesn't get as carefree as it did before the corona crisis, because risks remain. The virus is still among us and the situation remains uncertain. Measures to prevent the spread of the virus continue to apply in all countries. Holidaymakers have to deal with this. Are you going on vacation? Then travel wisely and prepare well. Start by downloading the BZ travel app and read the travel advice from your holiday destination carefully. '

The following countries have yet to make a decision when Dutch tourists are welcome again: Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Cyprus, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Malta, Norway, Austria, Romania, Saba, Sint Eustatius, Sint Maarten, Slovenia, Slovakia and Spain. This will likely happen in the coming weeks. Austria has already announced that they want to open the borders again on June 16 for European and therefore also for Dutch holidaymakers. Until now, travel advice for travel outside Europe remains 'code' orange (holiday travel not recommended). The guidelines are expected to be relaxed within a few weeks. The measures may also change and become more stringent again.
