  • Are you traveling to the Netherlands from abroad? Please check before your travel which rules apply to you on the website of the Dutch government: Rijksoverheid. There are no additional entry restrictions for most countries.
  • People who are fully vaccinated, have proof of recovery or a negative test result can travel to the Netherlands, but they must be able to show proof. For more information check Rijksoverheid.
  • Are you traveling abroad from the Netherlands after your boating holiday at Yachtcharter De Drait? Then you can have yourself tested before your journey.

  • From 25 February, the corona ticket will no longer be used in the Netherlands for access to, for example, catering.

The Situation in Germany

The corona code for Germany is green. You need a corona certificate when entering Germany. The validity of the proof of recovery is 90 days. Read the entire travel advice to see what this means for you.

  • If you are traveling from the Netherlands to Germany, you need a corona certificate. Take the (digital) corona proof with you when you travel. You may need to show this before or during your trip. Without a (digital) vaccination, recovery certificate, or forgetting to register, you must immediately go in quarantine upon arrival in Germany.
  • A corona proof can be your digital vaccination, recovery or negative test proof from the Coronacheck App. View the conditions here! 
  • In Germany, the domestic corona measures are being relaxed. The 2G+ obligation for retail has been abolished. In many other locations, this or the 2G scheme will continue to exist. Relaxations for, for example, hotels, catering and nightlife have only been announced before the beginning of March. The measures taken differ per state. Always read before departure which rules apply to the place you are going to. Or what you are traveling through.
  • In Germany, the 2G rule means that you must show a vaccination or recovery certificate. 2G+ means that, in addition to a vaccination or recovery certificate, you must show that you have had a booster or have tested negative. Can’t you show this? Then you will not be able to access certain locations.
  • In some cases, the 3G rule also applies, which means that you must be able to show an antigen test (maximum 24 hours old) or a PCR test (maximum 48 hours old) if you cannot provide a vaccination or recovery certificate. The 3G rule applies also to public transport (including by train or plane to and within Germany).
  • Wearing a face mask is mandatory in public places, shops, public transport, stations, and airports for everyone over 13 years old.
  • Keep a 1,5-meter distance.
