The cabinet continues to advise against travel to most European countries. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced early on Saturday morning that travel to four EU countries will be possible again. The Dutch are also allowed to go on holiday to a number of regions.
You can travel to Finland, Ireland, Malta, Portugal (including the Azores and Madeira). It also concerns the North and South Aegean Islands and Ionian Islands (Greece), the Balearic Islands and Canary Islands (Spain). These countries and regions go from orange to yellow. This also applies to Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten, Rwanda and Thailand. Saba and Sint Eustatius will receive the code green. Most countries' names had already been leaked.
Until now, the general travel advice not to travel abroad applied in connection with corona, but from Saturday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will again issue a travel advice for each country. "A step in the right direction," said the ministry. This calls on travelers to remain alert. "After all, the situation in a country can change quickly." Safe countries can also impose entry restrictions for foreign tourists, such as a quarantine requirement.
“The remaining European countries will remain color-coded orange for the time being, because they are a Covid high-risk area and the risk of contamination there is high. The cabinet continues to strongly discourage travel to these countries ”, the ministry reports. The travel advice can be found on the website ijsopreis.nl.
