If you are visiting The Netherlands and you test positive for coronavirus, you must isolate: • If you booked your trip through a tour operator, contact them if you need to isolate due to a positive test. • If you are travelling independently, you must arrange a place to isolate yourself. If you continue to test positive, contact the country you are travelling to after your stay in the Netherlands to find out about the entry rules for that country.

Self-quarantine means that you stay at home and do not receive visitors. You should do this if there is a risk that you may have been infected by COVID. By staying at your holiday accommodation you prevent the virus from spreading further.

Can I go to Amsterdam? Travel rules for the Netherlands

By Abigail Malbon

Amsterdam Netherlands

Planning a trip to the Netherlands? Here’s what you need to know.

What are the entry requirements for the Netherlands?

Since Wednesday 23 March 2022 , fully vaccinated travellers to the Netherlands coming from within and outside the EU or the Schengen area no longer require a test, proof of recovery or proof of vaccination. They are still advised to do a self-test immediately after arrival and again on day five. This is not enforced, as it is not a legal requirement. If you are not fully vaccinated, UK residents and citizens arriving from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are not able to enter the Netherlands for non-essential purposes, unless you meet the requirements of one of the Dutch government's EU entry ban exemption categories. Find out more about the exemption categories . 

What are the UK entry requirements for those coming from the Netherlands? 

Since 18 March 2022, all Covid travel rules have been dropped in the UK. This means that, regardless of vaccination status, those entering the country no longer need to fill out a passenger locator form, take any tests or quarantine. In England, since Thursday 24 February 2022, all travellers have not been legally required to quarantine even if their day two test is positive, although the official government and NHS advice and guidance is still to quarantine at home for five days if you test positive, as long as your next two tests after those five days are negative – otherwise you should continue to isolate until they are. In Scotland, the legal requirement to isolate was removed on 21 March, while it ended on 28 March in Wales. In Northern Ireland, all legal restrictions were replaced by guidance on 15 February 2022.  

It’s more important than ever to purchase travel insurance with Covid cover that is appropriate for your destination.

What are the current Covid restrictions within the Netherlands?

Since Wednesday 23 March 2022, wearing a face mask on public transport has no longer been required, although they must still be worn on aircrafts and at airports beyond the security checkpoint. Attendance at large-scale events no longer requires a negative Covid test result. This applies to indoor locations with more than 500 visitors per event and without assigned seating (such as a nightclub or live music venue). More information is available on the Dutch government’s website .

The Netherlands is easing lockdown - here's what travelers need to know

Sasha Brady

Jan 17, 2022 • 3 min read

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS - JANUARY 23rd, 2013: Shopping center Magna plaza in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, recently renovated the entire building, on January 23rd, 2013.

The Netherlands has begun to ease its COVID-19 restrictions by reopening some of the sectors that were forced to close in December due to  the emergence of the Omicron variant.

As of Saturday, January 15 a number of non-essential businesses have reopened including retail and gyms, while sporting and cultural activities can resume. Hotels remain open but many places are closed until at least the next COVID-19 lockdown review on January 25.

What's open in the Netherlands?

On Saturday, the Dutch government began to roll back some of the lockdown curbs that were introduced in mid-December to slow the spread of COVID-19. Among the places that are now open are non-essential shops, hair salons and gyms, but they are required to close at 5pm. People must wear face masks and the number of customers must be limited.

Hotels are open and guests can check in but some services, such as dining, remain limited. Hotels can serve guests food and drinks in their rooms, but hotel restaurants and bars are shut for dine-in services.

Essential shops like grocery shops and pharmacies are open until 8pm.

What's closed in the Netherlands?

The hospitality sector is pretty much locked down with restaurants, cafes and bars closed except for take-away service. Nightclubs closed until at least January 25. Theaters, cinemas and museums are temporarily closed too. The Van Gogh Museum said it will reopen on January 26, the Rijksmuseum on February 1, while the Anne Frank House is "closed until further notice".

Read more: Should I visit the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam?

What other restrictions are in place?

The Dutch government has tightened restrictions on mask wearing and they are now required in places where physical distancing (1.5 meters) is impossible. "This now also applies at busy outdoor places such as shopping streets," the government said. "People are now advised to wear a disposable face mask. The government advises against wearing fabric masks and homemade masks."

When meeting outdoors, people are advised not to meet in groups of more than four people (aged 13 and over), and are asked to do a self-test before meeting people indoors.

Can I travel to the Netherlands?

The Netherlands has kept its borders open throughout lockdown but rules vary depending on your point of departure. People traveling from a "safe" EU country or region can show proof of vaccination or a negative test result. Currently no countries are on the "safe" list. People traveling from a "high-risk" EU country must show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result and take a test upon arrival.

People coming from a country outside the EU that the Netherlands deems "very high risk" such as the UK must show proof of vaccination, a negative COVID-19 test result and quarantine for 10 days. The US is considered "high risk" and travelers may enter if they are fully vaccinated or qualify for one of the EU Entry Ban Exemption Categories . If you qualify and you can’t show proof of vaccination, you must be able to show a negative COVID-19 test result. You can see the full list of entry rules on the government's website.

Why is the Netherlands in lockdown?

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said the lockdown measures were "unavoidable" when the Netherlands locked down on December 18. With Omicron spreading rapdily, the Dutch government wanted to accelerate its booster campaign and remove some of the burden from the healthcare system. "The spread of the Omicron variant must be slowed as soon as possible in order to ensure healthcare services remain available to all," Rutte said in a statement in December.

When will lockdown end?

The government plans to review lockdown measures again on Saturday, January 25 and it is expected more restrictions will be lifted by then.

Eat and drink safely

Food and water standards around the world vary based on the destination. Standards may also differ within a country and risk may change depending on activity type (e.g., hiking versus business trip). You can learn more about safe food and drink choices when traveling by accessing the resources below.

  • Choose Safe Food and Drinks When Traveling
  • Water Treatment Options When Hiking, Camping or Traveling
  • Global Water, Sanitation and Hygiene | Healthy Water
  • Avoid Contaminated Water During Travel

You can also visit the  Department of State Country Information Pages  for additional information about food and water safety.

Prevent bug bites

Although the Netherlands is an industrialized country, bug bites here can still spread diseases. Just as you would in the United States, try to avoid bug bites while spending time outside or in wooded areas.

What can I do to prevent bug bites?

  • Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats.
  • Use an appropriate insect repellent (see below).
  • Consider using permethrin-treated clothing and gear if spending a lot of time outside. Do not use permethrin directly on skin.

What type of insect repellent should I use?

  • FOR PROTECTION AGAINST TICKS AND MOSQUITOES: Use a repellent that contains 20% or more DEET for protection that lasts up to several hours.
  • Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023, Bayrepel, and icaridin)
  • Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or para-menthane-diol (PMD)
  • 2-undecanone
  • Always use insect repellent as directed.

What should I do if I am bitten by bugs?

  • Avoid scratching bug bites, and apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to reduce the itching.
  • Check your entire body for ticks after outdoor activity. Be sure to remove ticks properly.

What can I do to avoid bed bugs?

Although bed bugs do not carry disease, they are an annoyance. See our information page about avoiding bug bites for some easy tips to avoid them. For more information on bed bugs, see Bed Bugs .

For more detailed information on avoiding bug bites, see Avoid Bug Bites .

Stay safe outdoors

If your travel plans in the Netherlands include outdoor activities, take these steps to stay safe and healthy during your trip:

  • Stay alert to changing weather conditions and adjust your plans if conditions become unsafe.
  • Prepare for activities by wearing the right clothes and packing protective items, such as bug spray, sunscreen, and a basic first aid kit.
  • Consider learning basic first aid and CPR before travel. Bring a travel health kit with items appropriate for your activities.
  • If you are outside for many hours in the heat, eat salty snacks and drink water to stay hydrated and replace salt lost through sweating.
  • Protect yourself from UV radiation : use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, wear protective clothing, and seek shade during the hottest time of day (10 a.m.–4 p.m.).
  • Be especially careful during summer months and at high elevation. Because sunlight reflects off snow, sand, and water, sun exposure may be increased during activities like skiing, swimming, and sailing.
  • Very cold temperatures can be dangerous. Dress in layers and cover heads, hands, and feet properly if you are visiting a cold location.

Stay safe around water

  • Swim only in designated swimming areas. Obey lifeguards and warning flags on beaches.
  • Do not dive into shallow water.
  • Avoid swallowing water when swimming. Untreated water can carry germs that make you sick.
  • Practice safe boating—follow all boating safety laws, do not drink alcohol if you are driving a boat, and always wear a life jacket.

Keep away from animals

Most animals avoid people, but they may attack if they feel threatened, are protecting their young or territory, or if they are injured or ill. Animal bites and scratches can lead to serious diseases such as rabies.

Follow these tips to protect yourself:

  • Do not touch or feed any animals you do not know.
  • Do not allow animals to lick open wounds, and do not get animal saliva in your eyes or mouth.
  • Avoid rodents and their urine and feces.
  • Traveling pets should be supervised closely and not allowed to come in contact with local animals.
  • If you wake in a room with a bat, seek medical care immediately.  Bat bites may be hard to see.

All animals can pose a threat, but be extra careful around dogs, bats, monkeys, sea animals such as jellyfish, and snakes. If you are bitten or scratched by an animal, immediately:

  • Wash the wound with soap and clean water.
  • Go to a doctor right away.
  • Tell your doctor about your injury when you get back to the United States.

Reduce your exposure to germs

Follow these tips to avoid getting sick or spreading illness to others while traveling:

  • Wash your hands often, especially before eating.
  • If soap and water aren’t available, clean hands with hand sanitizer (containing at least 60% alcohol).
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you need to touch your face, make sure your hands are clean.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Try to avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home or in your hotel room, unless you need medical care.

Avoid sharing body fluids

Diseases can be spread through body fluids, such as saliva, blood, vomit, and semen.

Protect yourself:

  • Use latex condoms correctly.
  • Do not inject drugs.
  • Limit alcohol consumption. People take more risks when intoxicated.
  • Do not share needles or any devices that can break the skin. That includes needles for tattoos, piercings, and acupuncture.
  • If you receive medical or dental care, make sure the equipment is disinfected or sanitized.

Know how to get medical care while traveling

Plan for how you will get health care during your trip, should the need arise:

  • Carry a list of local doctors and hospitals at your destination.
  • Review your health insurance plan to determine what medical services it would cover during your trip. Consider purchasing travel health and medical evacuation insurance for things your regular insurance will not cover.
  • Carry a card that identifies, in the local language, your blood type, chronic conditions or serious allergies, and the generic names of any medicines you take.
  • Bring copies of your prescriptions for medicine and for eye glasses and contact lenses.
  • Some prescription drugs may be illegal in other countries. Call the Netherlands’s embassy to verify that all of your prescription(s) are legal to bring with you.
  • Bring all the medicines (including over-the-counter medicines) you think you might need during your trip, including extra in case of travel delays. Ask your doctor to help you get prescriptions filled early if you need to.

Many foreign hospitals and clinics are accredited by the Joint Commission International. A list of accredited facilities is available at their website ( www.jointcommissioninternational.org ).

Select safe transportation

Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 killer of healthy US citizens in foreign countries.

Be smart when you are traveling on foot.

  • Use sidewalks and marked crosswalks.
  • Pay attention to the traffic around you, especially in crowded areas.
  • Remember, people on foot do not always have the right of way in other countries.

Riding/Driving

Choose a safe vehicle.

  • Choose official taxis or public transportation, such as trains and buses.
  • Make sure there are seatbelts.
  • Avoid overcrowded, overloaded, top-heavy buses and minivans.
  • Avoid riding on motorcycles or motorbikes, especially motorbike taxis. (Many crashes are caused by inexperienced motorbike drivers.)
  • Choose newer vehicles—they may have more safety features, such as airbags, and be more reliable.
  • Choose larger vehicles, which may provide more protection in crashes.

Think about the driver.

  • Do not drive after drinking alcohol or ride with someone who has been drinking.
  • Consider hiring a licensed, trained driver familiar with the area.
  • Arrange payment before departing.

Follow basic safety tips.

  • Wear a seatbelt at all times.
  • Sit in the back seat of cars and taxis.
  • When on motorbikes or bicycles, always wear a helmet. (Bring a helmet from home, if needed.)
  • Do not use a cell phone or text while driving (illegal in many countries).
  • Travel during daylight hours only, especially in rural areas.
  • If you choose to drive a vehicle in the Netherlands, learn the local traffic laws and have the proper paperwork.
  • Get any driving permits and insurance you may need. Get an International Driving Permit (IDP). Carry the IDP and a US-issued driver's license at all times.
  • Check with your auto insurance policy's international coverage, and get more coverage if needed. Make sure you have liability insurance.
  • Avoid using local, unscheduled aircraft.
  • If possible, fly on larger planes (more than 30 seats); larger airplanes are more likely to have regular safety inspections.
  • Try to schedule flights during daylight hours and in good weather.

Netherlands travel advice

Latest updates: The Need help? section was updated.

Last updated: June 14, 2024 07:58 ET

On this page

Safety and security, entry and exit requirements, laws and culture, natural disasters and climate, netherlands - exercise a high degree of caution.

Exercise a high degree of caution in the Netherlands due to the threat of terrorism.

Back to top

There is a threat of terrorism in Europe. Terrorists have carried out attacks in several European cities. Attacks in the Netherlands cannot be ruled out. Further attacks elsewhere in Europe are likely.

Targets could include:

  • government buildings, including schools
  • places of worship
  • airports and other transportation hubs and networks
  • public areas such as tourist attractions, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shopping centres, markets, hotels and other sites frequented by foreigners

Always be aware of your surroundings when in public places. Be particularly vigilant if attending sporting events and during religious holidays and other public celebrations, as terrorists have used such occasions to mount attacks.

The Dutch government maintains a public alert system on terrorism and communicates threat level changes online and through local media. The current threat level for the Netherlands is level 4 (“substantial”) on a scale of 5.

Current terrorism threat levels  - Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice

Petty crime, such as pickpocketing and bag snatching, occurs, particularly in larger cities.

Thieves often target tourists. In Amsterdam, they are typically active:

  • in restaurants and cafés
  • in establishments that sell soft drugs, locally referred to as coffee shops
  • at tourist attractions, including around the De Wallen District, also known as the red-light district
  • at the Central Station
  • on public transportation, particularly tram routes 1, 2, and 5, between Central Station and the museum district

Organized groups of pickpockets often use distracting techniques. Typically, a member of the group will distract someone by spilling something on them or by asking for directions, while others rob the victim.

Individuals posing as plain-clothes police officers have also approached foreigners to verify their documents or foreign currency with the intent to rob them. In a similar situation, politely decline to cooperate or offer to go to the nearest police station.

Thieves also operate on trains. They time their activities to coincide with train stops, which allows for a quick exit. Always be alert and particularly cautious on trains.

Travellers have had their passports and other valuable documents stolen in hostels.

  • Ensure that personal belongings, including your passport and other travel documents, are secure at all times
  • Do not carry valuables or large sums of money
  • Never leave baggage or personal belongings unattended

Home burglaries occur, particularly in larger cities during the winter holiday period. Perpetrators monitor a property and break in when they know the residents are away.

Violent crime also occurs, including armed robbery. If you are the victim of such an incident, don’t resist. Attackers have sometimes assaulted their victims for failing to comply or not complying quickly enough.

Loss or theft of ID documents

In case of the loss or theft of an identification document:

  • immediately report the incident to the nearest police station
  • obtain a copy of the police report and keep it with you at all times
  • apply for a replacement document as soon as possible

To file a police report, authorities in certain jurisdictions may require your passport or at least a copy. Before you go, make sure to bring a photocopy or a digital copy of your passport.

Credit card and ATM fraud

Credit card and ATM fraud occurs. Be cautious when using debit or credit cards:

  • pay careful attention when your cards are being handled by others
  • use ATMs located in well-lit public areas or inside a bank or business
  • avoid using card readers with an irregular or unusual feature
  • cover the keypad with one hand when entering your PIN
  • check for any unauthorized transactions on your account statements

Cybercrime occurs. Perpetrators may compromise public Wi-Fi networks to steal credit card or personal information.

  • Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks
  • Avoid making purchases on unencrypted websites
  • Be cautious when posting information on social media
  • Be particularly vigilant when contacting or meeting individuals known over the internet

Overseas fraud

Spiked food and drinks

Never leave food or drinks unattended or in the care of strangers. Be wary of accepting snacks, beverages, gum or cigarettes from new acquaintances. These items may contain drugs that could put you at risk of sexual assault and robbery.

Demonstrations

Demonstrations take place frequently, particularly in major cities. Even peaceful demonstrations can turn violent at any time. They can also lead to disruptions to traffic and public transportation.

  • Avoid areas where demonstrations and large gatherings are taking place
  • Follow the instructions of local authorities
  • Monitor local media for information on ongoing demonstrations

Mass gatherings (large-scale events)

Road safety

Roads conditions and road safety are excellent throughout the country.

Be cautious when driving and keep the following in mind:

  • cyclists have priority over other traffic
  • trams have priority except where signposted at major junctions
  • buses have priority when pulling out of bus stops
  • unless otherwise signposted, vehicles coming from the right have priority

Whether you’re driving or on foot, pay attention to cyclists and when crossing bike paths. While on foot, make sure you’re not inadvertently walking on a bike path. These commonly run alongside sidewalks and are not always clearly marked.

Trams sometimes share pedestrian streets. Always be alert when walking near tram rails.

Pedestrians must follow the traffic lights at intersections. Even if it was safe to do so, you could be fined if you cross a road without waiting for the green light.

We do not make assessments on the compliance of foreign domestic airlines with international safety standards.

About Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres in Canada

Measles is a highly contagious viral disease. It can spread quickly from person to person by direct contact and through droplets in the air.

Anyone who is not protected against measles is at risk of being infected with it when travelling internationally.

Regardless of where you are going, talk to a health care professional before travelling to make sure you are fully protected against measles.

  Hepatitis B is a risk in every destination. It is a viral liver disease that is easily transmitted from one person to another through exposure to blood and body fluids containing the hepatitis B virus.  Travellers who may be exposed to blood or other bodily fluids (e.g., through sexual contact, medical treatment, sharing needles, tattooing, acupuncture or occupational exposure) are at higher risk of getting hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended for all travellers. Prevent hepatitis B infection by practicing safe sex, only using new and sterile drug equipment, and only getting tattoos and piercings in settings that follow public health regulations and standards.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious viral disease. It can spread from person to person by direct contact and through droplets in the air.

It is recommended that all eligible travellers complete a COVID-19 vaccine series along with any additional recommended doses in Canada before travelling. Evidence shows that vaccines are very effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. While vaccination provides better protection against serious illness, you may still be at risk of infection from the virus that causes COVID-19. Anyone who has not completed a vaccine series is at increased risk of being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 and is at greater risk for severe disease when travelling internationally.

Before travelling, verify your destination’s COVID-19 vaccination entry/exit requirements. Regardless of where you are going, talk to a health care professional before travelling to make sure you are adequately protected against COVID-19.

 The best way to protect yourself from seasonal influenza (flu) is to get vaccinated every year. Get the flu shot at least 2 weeks before travelling.  

 The flu occurs worldwide. 

  •  In the Northern Hemisphere, the flu season usually runs from November to   April.
  •  In the Southern Hemisphere, the flu season usually runs between April and   October.
  •  In the tropics, there is flu activity year round. 

The flu vaccine available in one hemisphere may only offer partial protection against the flu in the other hemisphere.

The flu virus spreads from person to person when they cough or sneeze or by touching objects and surfaces that have been contaminated with the virus. Clean your hands often and wear a mask if you have a fever or respiratory symptoms.

In this destination, rabies  may be present in some wildlife species, including bats. Rabies is a deadly disease that spreads to humans primarily through bites or scratches from an infected animal. 

If you are bitten or scratched by an animal while travelling, immediately wash the wound with soap and clean water and see a health care professional. 

Before travel, discuss rabies vaccination with a health care professional. It may be recommended for travellers who will be working directly with wildlife. 

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a risk in some areas of this destination. It is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It is spread to humans by the bite of infected ticks or occasionally when unpasteurized milk products are consumed.

Travellers to areas where TBE is found may be at higher risk  during April to November, and the risk is highest for people who hike or camp in forested areas.

Protect yourself from tick bites . The vaccine is not available in Canada. It may be available in the destination you are travelling to.

Safe food and water precautions

Many illnesses can be caused by eating food or drinking beverages contaminated by bacteria, parasites, toxins, or viruses, or by swimming or bathing in contaminated water.

  • Learn more about food and water precautions to take to avoid getting sick by visiting our eat and drink safely abroad page. Remember: Boil it, cook it, peel it, or leave it!
  • Avoid getting water into your eyes, mouth or nose when swimming or participating in activities in freshwater (streams, canals, lakes), particularly after flooding or heavy rain. Water may look clean but could still be polluted or contaminated.
  • Avoid inhaling or swallowing water while bathing, showering, or swimming in pools or hot tubs. 

Insect bite prevention

Many diseases are spread by the bites of infected insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, fleas or flies. When travelling to areas where infected insects may be present:

  • Use insect repellent (bug spray) on exposed skin
  • Cover up with light-coloured, loose clothes made of tightly woven materials such as nylon or polyester
  • Minimize exposure to insects
  • Use mosquito netting when sleeping outdoors or in buildings that are not fully enclosed

To learn more about how you can reduce your risk of infection and disease caused by bites, both at home and abroad, visit our insect bite prevention page.

Find out what types of insects are present where you’re travelling, when they’re most active, and the symptoms of the diseases they spread.

Animal precautions

Some infections, such as rabies and influenza, can be shared between humans and animals. Certain types of activities may increase your chance of contact with animals, such as travelling in rural or forested areas, camping, hiking, and visiting wet markets (places where live animals are slaughtered and sold) or caves.

Travellers are cautioned to avoid contact with animals, including dogs, livestock (pigs, cows), monkeys, snakes, rodents, birds, and bats, and to avoid eating undercooked wild game.

Closely supervise children, as they are more likely to come in contact with animals.

Person-to-person infections

Stay home if you’re sick and practise proper cough and sneeze etiquette , which includes coughing or sneezing into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand. Reduce your risk of colds, the flu and other illnesses by:

  •   washing your hands often
  • avoiding or limiting the amount of time spent in closed spaces, crowded places, or at large-scale events (concerts, sporting events, rallies)
  • avoiding close physical contact with people who may be showing symptoms of illness 

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) , HIV , and mpox are spread through blood and bodily fluids; use condoms, practise safe sex, and limit your number of sexual partners. Check with your local public health authority pre-travel to determine your eligibility for mpox vaccine.  

Medical services and facilities

Health care is excellent. Service is available throughout the country.

Make sure you get travel insurance that includes coverage for medical evacuation and hospital stays.

Travel health and safety

Keep in Mind...

The decision to travel is the sole responsibility of the traveller. The traveller is also responsible for his or her own personal safety.

Be prepared. Do not expect medical services to be the same as in Canada. Pack a   travel health kit , especially if you will be travelling away from major city centres.

You must abide by local laws.

Learn about what you should do and how we can help if you are arrested or detained abroad .

Transfer to a Canadian prison

Canada and the Netherlands are signatories to the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons. This enables a Canadian imprisoned in the Netherlands to request a transfer to a Canadian prison to complete a sentence. The transfer requires the agreement of both Canadian and the Netherlands authorities.

This process can take a long time, and there is no guarantee that the transfer will be approved by either or both sides.

Despite a common misconception, soft drugs like cannabis are controlled substances in the Netherlands. Some establishments, locally known as coffee shops, are allowed to sell soft drugs for personal use, but they must be licensed. Buyers must also be residents of the Netherlands.

Penalties for possession, use or trafficking of illegal drugs are severe. You could face a jail sentence and heavy fines for:

  • trafficking
  • attempting to travel in or out of the Netherlands with soft drugs, even for personal use
  • using drugs outside licensed establishments
  • attempting to buy drugs at a licensed establishment if you’re not a resident of the Netherlands

Drugs, alcohol and travel

It’s illegal in the Netherlands to carry certain types of knives. These restrictions might be more severe in certain municipalities and public venues, such as restaurants and stadiums.

Avoid travelling with a knife.

Identification

You must carry valid identification at all times if you are over 14. Local authorities may give you a fine if you fail to show them appropriate identification upon request.

The following documents, if valid, are acceptable identification:

  • Dutch residence permits
  • driver’s licence issued in the Netherlands or elsewhere in the European Union and the European Economic Area

Keep a photocopy of your passport in a safe place, in case it’s lost or confiscated.

Dual citizenship

Dual citizenship is not legally recognized in the Netherlands, with some exceptions.

If local authorities consider you a citizen of the Netherlands, they may refuse to grant you access to Canadian consular services. This will prevent us from providing you with those services.

  • More about dual nationality - Government of the Netherlands
  • General information for travellers with dual citizenship

International Child Abduction

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is an international treaty. It can help parents with the return of children who have been removed to or retained in certain countries in violation of custody rights. The convention applies between Canada and the Netherlands.

If your child was wrongfully taken to, or is being held in the Netherlands, and if the applicable conditions are met, you may apply for the return of your child to the Netherlands court.

If you are in this situation:

  • act as quickly as you can
  • contact the Central Authority for your province or territory of residence for information on starting an application under The Hague Convention
  • consult a lawyer in Canada and in the Netherlands to explore all the legal options for the return of your child
  • report the situation to the nearest Canadian government office abroad or to the Vulnerable Children's Consular Unit at Global Affairs Canada by calling the Emergency Watch and Response Centre

If your child was removed from a country other than Canada, consult a lawyer to determine if The Hague Convention applies.

Be aware that Canadian consular officials cannot interfere in private legal matters or in another country's judicial affairs.

  • banknotes and coins
  • bearer negotiable instruments such as cheques, travellers’ cheques, promissory notes and money orders
  • bonds, shares
  • gold coins with a gold content of at least 90 %
  • gold bars, nuggets or clumps with a gold content of at least 99.5 %

Italy Travel Restrictions: What Travelers Need To Know

Updated December 18, 2022

Italy was one of the first countries to be hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic and has subsequently worked hard to get the disease under control. At this point, the country has largely reopened, which means that travelers can enjoy the fantastic food, culture, and history that makes Italy such an electric destination.

Is It Safe To Travel To Italy Right Now?

As COVID travel restrictions go, Italy has lifted most of them and travel feels much like it did pre-pandemic. But is Italy safe to visit? 

When the coronavirus pandemic first emerged in 2020, it hit Italy especially hard with a devastating first wave in March 2020. Like most places, Italy has seen more waves of COVID over the past few years. But strict travel restrictions and a vaccination campaign that has resulted in 80% of the country fully vaccinated as of September 2022 have helped keep the virus at bay as much as possible.

At this point, the CDC gives Italy a Level 3 rating , which means that cases are high. They recommend that all travelers get vaccinated before going to Italy . 

So what kind of COVID travel policies does Italy have in place? And what should travelers expect when they arrive in cities like Rome, Venice, or Naples? 

Italy Travel Restrictions To Know Before Your Arrival

Both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers may visit Italy (although the CDC recommends vaccination before travel). Neither vaccinated nor unvaccinated travelers need to present a negative COVID test. 

Right now, the only nationwide requirement to keep in mind is that FFP2 masks are required on public transportation and in healthcare settings. Individual businesses are also allowed to require masks at their discretion.

What To Expect On A Trip To Italy

Travel in Italy feels almost like it did pre-COVID. More people wear masks (and they’re still required in some places). It’s smart to pack COVID rapid tests and be mindful of the local case levels. If you happen to get COVID during your trip, you’ll need to self-isolate for 5 - 14 days . 

But day to day, you can take a passeggiata in the evenings, go for a cappuccino at a corner cafe in the mornings, visit museums, and enjoy long leisurely meals like you could before the pandemic. 

That said, things could change at any time and it’s important for travelers to respect local rules and regulations.

Why Travel To Italy Right Now

Things to do in Italy range from exploring the rich history in Rome to feasting on seafood in Venice, soaking in the art scene in Florence, or simply sitting down and ordering some handmade pasta. 

Plus, you’ll find some fantastic places to stay in Italy. If you love old cities, history, and good food, you can’t beat going to Rome. If you’re looking for rolling countryside and heart-stopping sunsets, then maybe you’ll want to go to Tuscany. Then again, it’s hard to beat the glitz and glam of Milan.

All in all, travelers will still be able to plan an Italy trip that fits their travel style. If you’re looking to get out of the cities and avoid crowds, Italy has tons of places to visit that you’ll like. But if you’re ready to see the world again and dive into an Italian city, then you can find that, too.

Flight information, infinity mileagelands, business travel, please select your country / region of residence, news releases, eva wins another mark of excellence, quality achievement ranking 8th among skytrax's top 10 best airlines in the world.

Jun 25, 2024

SKYTRAX, an airline and airport review and ranking site, unveiled its “2024 Global Airline Awards” at the Fairmont Windsor Park on Monday, 24 June, 2024. EVA Air President Clay Sun attended on behalf of EVA and accepted 16 of the airline’s awards, including 8th place ranking among the “World's Top 10 Best Airlines” and first for “Best Premium Economy Class Airline Catering” and “Best Premium Economy Class Onboard Catering in Asia” EVA also earned distinction as one of only 10 SKYTRAX’s Five-Star Airlines for nine consecutive years. More information on EVA’s honors and awards is available at Awards & Honors - EVA Air | North America (English) . Travelers can check out routes and book flights at www.evaair.com .

“Reaching the highest bar to win the SKYTRAX 5-Star Airline Rating is an honor and the best affirmation we could receive of the good and hard work all our employees perform on a daily basis,” said EVA President Clay Sun. “We are grateful to every passenger for their trust and support and will continue to pursue excellence and continuously introduce the latest technology to optimize our services in order to bring a more comfortable, safe and enjoyable flight journey to all passengers.”

EVA launched the world’s first Premium Economy Class in 1992, leading the airline industry and setting the pace for widespread adoption of this innovative cabin. As it continues to expand its fleet and network, EVA is adding its latest Premium Economy in-between the Royal Laurel and Economy Classes on its Boeing 787-9s, refreshing and reconfiguring the aircraft. It will introduce the first upgraded B787-9 before the end of 2024 and the rest of the fleet will undergo the upgrade process. EVA will use them to facilitate flight scheduling and further elevate service quality, enabling more passengers to enjoy higher quality onboard experiences at affordable fares.

In order to further optimize in-flight services, starting from July 2024, EVA will offer Taiwan’s famous Kanpai Group Japanese-style barbecue meals to passengers in all three cabin classes, initially available on routes departing from Taipei to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York.

I stayed in 2 of Arizona's top hotels. They explain why Scottsdale is a luxury travel hot spot.

  • Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, Arizona, offer luxury travel experiences. 
  • The vast majority of hotel rooms in both Phoenix suburbs are upscale. 
  • I stayed in the area's top-rated hotels, the Phoenician and the Hermosa Inn. They epitomized luxury.

Insider Today

Secret exits, private outdoor spaces, high-tech golf carts, dramatic chandeliers, award-winning restaurants , and cowboy artifacts — I saw them all during my trip to Scottsdale without leaving my hotel.

Tourists travel to Arizona for luxury resorts, spas, and golf clubs, Condé Nast Traveler reported in 2023 .

Scottsdale , in particular, draws affluent travelers with its health and wellness scene, upscale dining experiences, and top-tier golf courses. So, it's no wonder the area caters to high-end travel.

Scottsdale has more luxurious hotel rooms than standard ones — 80% of the city's 12,500 rooms are classified as luxury level or higher (upscale and upper upscale), according to a Scottsdale tourism report published in 2022 in partnership with Experience Scottsdale , a travel company that has helped establish the city's luxe tourism reputation.

The only place in the area with a higher concentration of luxury accommodations than Scottsdale — 90% of rooms — is Paradise Valley, the wealthier suburb between Phoenix and Scottsdale.

But tourists see Paradise Valley as a part of Scottsdale, according to the report — probably because the towns are close together and offer comparable pampering experiences and jaw-dropping views.

I recently spent two nights in Arizona and booked one night in each suburb's top luxury hotel.

I spent my first night at the Phoenician in Scottsdale , a luxury Marriott Hotel dubbed "Arizona's leading resort" in the 2023 World Travel Awards .

On day two, I headed to Paradise Valley to stay at the boutique Hermosa Inn , which Travel + Leisure called the best hotel in Arizona in 2023.

These similar superlatives made me think the Phoenician and the Hermosa Inn would provide comparable luxury experiences . In reality, the two hotels were completely different.

Still, both showed me why these Phoenix suburbs are hot spots for wealthy travelers.

In Scottsdale, I stayed at the Phoenician — an upscale mega-resort.

netherlands travel restrictions

The multimillion-dollar luxury Marriott Hotel opened in 1988 and has been renovated several times to amp up its upscale offerings — most recently in 2018.

The Phoenician has 645 rooms on its 600-acre property at the base of Camelback Mountain. The gated hotel grounds are full of activities ranging from sports to relaxation. It's the kind of hotel with so much to do that guests could spend their whole vacation on the property .

In Paradise Valley, I stayed at the Hermosa Inn, a boutique hotel with a completely different vibe.

netherlands travel restrictions

The vast majority of Scottsdale and Paradise Valley hotels have more than 50 rooms, making the wealthier suburb's 43-room Hermosa Inn a unique option for those seeking seclusion.

The Hermosa Inn isn't luxurious in a glitzy sense. Instead, it marvels guests by making them feel like they traveled to the 20th-century Western era.

Its roots as a 1930s cowboy's home and studio are evident upon arrival with adobe bricks, beehive fireplaces, historic artwork from paintings to silk, and artifacts like worn saddles and Stetson hats.

I thought the Hermosa Inn was ideal for travelers craving privacy and a personal touch.

netherlands travel restrictions

The Hermosa Inn's 43 stand-alone casitas are secluded accommodations situated next to discrete exits. Guest service agent Tami Norton told Business Insider that the hotel often hosts celebrities and executives in the public eye, and its small size allows it to accommodate special, personalized requests.

For example, Norton noted a recent guest in town to perform.

"The hours they keep are quite different; they arrive back on the property late at night and need to sleep in during the day," she said of performers. "So that particular guest needed the room totally blacked out before they came. We blacked out everything from the skylight down to the glow of the thermostat."

AZ Central reported that Clark Gable, Whitney Houston , David Spade, and Tyrese Gibson have dined and stayed at the Hermosa Inn.

Norton told BI that actors often have strict dietary restrictions that the kitchen accommodates by ordering special ingredients and portioning them out with a scale. She added that guests can also request small appliances in their rooms for protein shakes and other quick meals.

Both hotels had upscale rooms with king-sized beds, large bathrooms, and private outdoor spaces.

netherlands travel restrictions

My deluxe room at the Phoenician was filled with modern furniture with Southwestern accents. From the comfy bed and oversized tub to the balcony, the room epitomized 21st-century luxury .

While the Phoenician room was modern, the Hermosa Inn casita had a more traditional luxury brand.

netherlands travel restrictions

At the Hermosa Inn, I slept in what was essentially a small house. It was easily the biggest hotel room I've stayed in.

Unlike the Phoenician, the Hermosa Inn's room didn't feel modern at all. The Southwestern vibe was all-encompassing, from the furniture to the decor. It felt more unique than the room at the Phoenician while boasting the same amenities, including a large tub and bed.

The Hermosa Inn room also had a beehive fireplace and a skylight. Rather than a balcony, the one-story accommodation had a private patio.

Both hotels housed renowned dining hot spots.

netherlands travel restrictions

The high-quality dining at each hotel attracts more than just hotel guests with buzzy, award-winning restaurants.

Three of the Phoenician's eight dining venues and bars — Mowry & Cotton, J&G Steakhouse, and Thirsty Camel — have received kudos from Forbes Travel Guide, Open Table, and Trip Advisor, according to the hotel's website .

LON's, the Hermosa Inn's only restaurant and bar, is known by Food & Wine for its romantic vibe. It offers outdoor seating surrounded by vibrant gardens and beehive fireplaces. Open Table has included LON's in its roundup of the best brunch menus in the country for four years running.

The Hermosa Inn's restaurant added a wine cellar 20 years ago for ultra-VIP dining.

netherlands travel restrictions

In its 2003 renovations, LON's upgraded its VIP offerings, adding a small dining room in an underground wine cellar and an exclusive tasting menu.

The Phoenician has also gotten several upgrades, including an award-winning, three-story spa with two pools.

netherlands travel restrictions

With the most spas per capita in the US, according to Go Banking Rates , Scottsdale is a hot spot for health and wellness tourism .

The Phoenician is ideal for a rejuvenating trip thanks to its award-winning, three-story spa renovated in 2018.

The dramatic entryway greets patrons with an artistic chandelier and golden details throughout the spa. In addition to massage and facial treatment rooms, a sauna, and a meditation room, the facility has two pools — one on the rooftop — a nail salon, and a dry bar for hair styling.

There's also a fitness room where guests can work with a personal trainer.

The same hotel has five more outdoor pools, including one made of pearl tiles imported from Italy.

netherlands travel restrictions

The massive Phoenician pool complex includes a splash pad and an adults-only pool.

But the most luxurious of the five is the serenity pool made of Italian Mother-of-Pearl tiles that cost $1 million, according to the company's website . The hand-placed tiles give the pool an iridescent shine similar to the inside of a sea shell.

The Phoenician Golf Club takes the upscale sport to another level.

netherlands travel restrictions

I'm no golfer, but it's easy to see why those who play would stay at the Phoenician.

The 18-hole course and club, renovated in 2018, wowed me with views and high-tech features. Players rode around the pristine course lined with gardens and fountains against a mountain backdrop in golf carts with GPS screens that stream news and entertainment.

Whether you're looking for a private vacation or one where you don't have to leave the hotel, Scottsdale has it all.

netherlands travel restrictions

After staying at both resorts, there was undoubtedly more to do at the Phoenician. I could see why travelers craving a mega-resort vacation where they don't have to navigate the city to have a good time would pick the Phoenician for their luxury vacation.

But the Hermosa Inn is a better choice for those desiring a unique and exclusive stay with large, private accommodations and plenty of personal attention.

If you stay at both, as I did, luxury travelers can have it all in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley. That's why I think so many wealthy vacationers choose the Arizona hot spot for their getaways.
