Nimwigen The Netherlands will tighten regulations from next Tuesday and will, in the future, require a coronavirus test upon entry from Germany. At the same time, Germany is relaxing the rules for its neighbors, and vacations can also be spent without subsequent quarantines.
The Netherlands tightens entry regulations for Corona starting next Tuesday, June 1. For travelers from high-risk areas like Germany, the test is mandatory when crossing the border. And this is despite the fact that the incidence rate in the Netherlands of 148 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (as of May 28) is still much higher than in Germany. With the new regulation, the obligation to take a negative test, which had been in effect for months when entering the Netherlands by bus, ship, train or plane, was extended to vehicle traffic at the border.
People who live in Germany but work, study or go to school in the Netherlands are exempt from the test. However, you must present a health declaration and certification from the employer or educational institution upon entry. There is also an exception for those arriving in the neighboring country for a short stay of less than twelve hours. The new organization has no practical implications for the border region: after all, the Germans have to take a test with them upon their return from the kingdom. This regulation is in effect since the beginning of April.
The German government is now taking the opposite step and easing entry requirements into the Netherlands in light of fewer accidents on both sides of the border. The neighboring country will not be considered a region with a high infection rate, but rather a zone of danger, as the Robert Koch Institute announced Friday. This removes the general quarantine requirements for travelers from these countries.
Cross-border travelers can avoid ten days of isolation by testing the negative aura upon entry. This means that Germans can go on vacation to the Netherlands again aboard Corpus Christi, for example. After residing in a risk area, home quarantine can be ended prematurely if there is negative test evidence. With the free testing option, there is no need to quarantine.
