Check the travel advice in advance

The government advises Dutch people with travel plans to check the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance to determine whether the country of destination is safe and whether there are entry restrictions, such as quarantine or a test obligation. The travel advice can be found on the website wijopreis.nl and travel app of the ministery

The government emphasizes that it is important to consult the travel advice not only when booking a trip, but also shortly before departure, during the trip and upon return. After all, the situation in a country or region can change quickly. It is also important that travelers check carefully which measures apply en route, such as at the airport, the station or in the countries through which people travel by car on their way to their destination. Download the travel app at www.wijsopreis.nl and receive an automatic message if the travel advice changes. 

Safe countries

RIVM assesses for which countries an increased risk applies. RIVM looks at various factors, namely the degree of infection, the number of tests taken, the percentage of positive tests, the number of travelers who test positive in the Netherlands and have recently been to a certain country and the trend of the incidence figures (how often corona occurs). In addition, RIVM is also looking at the presence of mutants and variants.  

Digital Green Certificate

The Digital Green Certificate which allows people to demonstrate that they have been vaccinated, have recently tested negative for Covid-19, or have built up immunity after a recent infection, makes travel easier.

What is the travel advisory applies to a little country and what is the meaning of the codes?

However, travel advice can often change during this time. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs therefore recommends that you also visit the website nederlandwereldreed.nl for the current state of affairs.

What is travel advice anyway?

What do these color codes actually mean? The colors represent the advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for traveling abroad. The travel advice is classified with the colors green, yellow, orange and red. The recommendations are drawn up on the basis of, among other things, the Dutch embassy in the area, other ministries, intelligence services and local authorities.

However, the travel advice is not binding: it remains the responsibility of the traveler and the travel organizations involved whether or not a trip continues.

Normally, the color codes of the travel advice refer to the safety situation in the country. During the current pandemic, the color codes mainly relate to the extent to which countries have taken measures against the corona virus. The other security risks in countries are still mentioned on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but are not indicated by a color code.

Code green: no special security risks
If a country code is green, then there are no known security risks and travel is simply possible. The situation in the country is comparable to the situation in the Netherlands.

Yellow code: caution, safety risks
Code yellow means that measures have been taken in that country or region against the corona virus that have a limited impact on daily life.

Normally, color code yellow means that travelers in this country must be alert. There are safety risks in the country or region that deviate from what we are used to in the Netherlands. Prepare for that and pay extra attention.

Orange code: only necessary trips
Daily life has been disrupted in countries with the orange color code due to the corona crisis. A travel advice remains orange if the country does not yet have enough control over the coronavirus, no Dutch tourists are allowed to come yet or a mandatory quarantine is imposed on arrival.

If a country code is orange, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommends traveling to the area only if this is really necessary. A holiday trip, for example, is not.

Code red: travel is not recommended
In an area with code red, the situation is not only dangerous, but even life-threatening. Travel to this area is therefore not recommended.

The country may also be completely closed off because of the corona virus. There is then no insight into entry and exit, as is currently the case with Montenegro. The Dutch are now only allowed to enter that country in very exceptional circumstances. All commercial air traffic in Montenegro has also been shut down, according to a spokesman for Foreign Affairs.

Additional measures, such as places where it is mandatory to wear mouth masks, are also visible.

Google is rolling out the update in the Netherlands, France, Argentina, India, the United States and the United Kingdom, among others. In the previous months, the company analyzed location data of billions of users in 131 countries to map population mobility during the corona crisis.
