This obligation does not apply to travelers from the Caribbean part of the Netherlands and a number of safe countries.

Certain groups of travelers from outside the European Union no longer can enter the country for the time being. For example, business travelers, students, highly skilled migrants, people from the cultural sector and people with a relationship with someone in the Netherlands cannot come to our country for a short stay.

The test must be taken no more than 72 hours before arrival in the Netherlands. The Dutch military police can send passengers back to their country of origin at Schiphol airport if you travel to the Netherlands without any necessary reason.

 Flight ban: UK, South Africa, South America

A curfew, a flight ban for certain countries, restricting home visits and even more measures are, according to outgoing Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health), necessary to cope with the third wave.

These are preliminary results that have not yet been published in scientific articles. Compared to the British variant, the South African has three changes in the portion of the spike protein on the outside of the virus that attaches to the human cell's ACE2 receptor. The two variants share one mutation that causes this: N501Y. But two others that the South African variant has, E484K and K417N, may enhance infectivity and immune system escape. (23-1-2021) (

The variant appears to be more contagious, says virologist Marion Koopmans (Erasmus MC), who is involved in research into the spread of the variant in the Netherlands. "According to a new British study, people in which that variant was found had a significantly higher amount of virus in them and were therefore more contagious".

 • Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health) added to Rutte's words that the British mutation is now responsible for "a few percent" of corona infections, but that that percentage is expected to rise. "We have to slow down the spread. We do that with measures". (12-01-2021)
