COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The virus has officially been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). To contain the coronavirus in the Netherlands the Dutch Government has taken additional measures. What does this mean: 




As of Saturday the 25th of September, the following COVID measures will apply:

  • Catering establishments and events still close at midnight;
  • The maximum capacity of most venues is back to 100%, with an exception for events (75%);
  • It is no longer mandatory to keep 1.5 metres distance in public areas, though still recommended;
  • The requirement to wear a face mask still applies on public transport, aeroplanes and other forms of passenger transport, but no longer inside of stations and airports, and in secondary schools. Passengers who do not wear a face mask can be fined €95.

To support the relaxation of the 1.5 metres distance rule, it will become mandatory to display a COVID pass in the following places:

  • In all catering establishments (except for take-away restaurants);
  • At events (such as festivals, performances, and professional sports competitions);
  • At exhibitions of art and culture (cinemas, theatres, and museums).

This applies indoors, with or without a fixed seat. The COVID pass must be used by all individuals aged 14 or over.


Getting your valid COVID pass and entering a venue consists of three simple steps:

  1. Download the CoronaCheck-app or go to CoronaCheck.nl;
  2. Upload your proof (proof of vaccination, proof of recovery, or proof of a negative COVID test result);
  3. Show your QR-code in the app together with a valid form of identification at the place you want to enter!

It is also possible to use the COVID pass which is used by another country if you have proof through one of these programs, just make sure to show the internationally recognised QR-code.

There are 3 ways to get a COVID pass in the CoronaCheck app:

  1. Vaccination certificate
    Full covid vaccination with a European approved vaccine. In the Netherlands, a vaccination is usually valid from 14 days after you have been fully vaccinated. Were you vaccinated with Janssen on or after 14 August 2021? Then your vaccination will be valid in the Netherlands after 28 days. The CoronaCheck app can usually retrieve your vaccination certificate automatically from the systems of RIVM or GGD.
  2. Proof of recovery
    Proof of a positive coronavirus test from at least 11 days ago and no more than 180 days ago.
  3. Proof of negative COVID test
    A negative test result from less than 24 hours before the activity.


  • If you wish to enter or return from the EU/Schengen area to the Netherlands, check these points before you travel.
  • If you wish to enter or return to the Netherlands from outside the EU/Schengen area, check these points before you travel.

If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.

If you don’t have any symptoms, you can go and do some grocery shopping or walk your dog. If you keep an arm’s length away from others, the chance that others will infect you with COVID-19 or that you will infect others is small. If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.

Only use public transport if there is no alternative. Avoid rush hours and keep as far apart as possible.
From June 1 wearing a non-medical face mask will be compulsory when travelling on public transport.
