THE NETHERLANDS is the latest country to lift more Covid restrictions.
As of this morning, Brits will no longer need to have a negative Covid test to enter the Netherlands, even if they are unvaccinated.
The Foreign Office website states: “From 23 March, all travelers from the UK to the Netherlands will not need a negative pre-test to travel to the Netherlands, regardless of their vaccination status.”
Previously, travelers had to have a negative PCR test within 48 hours of departure or a negative antigen test within 24 hours of departure.
However, that rule was scrapped this morning, meaning vaccinated travelers only need to fill out a Health declaration form enter the Netherlands.
But unvaccinated Britons are still unable to travel to the Netherlands for tourism reasons, meaning a holiday is out of the question.
There are some exceptions for unvaccinated travelers – these include close family members of terminally ill patients, grandparents visiting their newborn grandchildren and divorced parents visiting their children.
From today, unvaccinated Brits who fall into these categories will no longer need to take a pre-test to enter the Netherlands.
Vaccinated travelers are also warned that the Netherlands has nine months Expiry date on vaccination cardmeaning travelers must have received their second dose within this time.
All Britons who received their second dose more than 270 days ago are considered unvaccinated unless they got a refresher.
Starting tomorrow, the popular Spanish islands – including Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria – will return to a pre-pandemic way of working.
However, President Ángel Víctor Torres warned that it would be a temporary measure and the rules could be reinstated if the health situation deteriorated again.
Canada will soon follow in the footsteps of the Netherlands and will do so Scrap Covid tests before departure for vaccinated Britons from April 1st.
