Visitors from outside the EU are required to be tested for coronavirus daily, even if they are fully vaccinated when the coronapass system goes live on September 25.
The Dutch CoronaCheck app only recognizes vaccines that are compatible with European digital coronavirus certificates, including non-EU countries such as Norway and Turkey.
Tourists from other countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States, will not be able to use the domestic Covid app at Dutch restaurants, cafes, sports facilities and theaters.
This means that you have to show evidence that the coronavirus test done in the last 24 hours is negative in order to eat out at a restaurant, drink at a bar, or go to a soccer match. Means They can drink at the sidewalk cafe, but they need a test certificate to use the indoor toilet.
Unlike other EU countries, such as France and Belgium, where the local Covid Pass approves the UK’s NHS app, the Dutch government has postponed the approval of vaccine certificates from third countries to the EU.
However, the UK has not yet begun the process of approving the Covid app to the EU, so it is unlikely that things will change in the near future.
There is a procedure to register a vaccine certificate from the NHS or other foreign medical services in the Dutch Covid app, but this is only available to those who live in the Netherlands and have a Social Security Number (BSN).
Hospitality bosses have withdrawn forced quarantine for vaccinated travelers on September 22, and the retreat hits tourism, much like choosing Paris or Brussels over Amsterdam for the fall vacation. I am concerned about giving.
A spokeswoman for the industry group Koninklijk Horeca Nederland told Dutch News: ‘Without BSN or digital access, you will not be able to obtain a vaccine certificate and will need to be tested, tested and tested. That is not the ideal situation. “
In 2019, visitors from the United Kingdom and the United States accounted for 24.6% of all foreign tourist stays in the Netherlands.
Tourists are told on social media this week that they will need to take a free PCR test before attending bars, nightclubs and events starting next Saturday. Tests can be booked by calling the 08001202 Corona Test Hotline.

Not everyone was reluctant to take the daily exams during the holidays.Ian Ratcliffe Said on twitter:’I am happy to take daily tests as needed. It’s a little inconvenience, but at least it’s free. “
A spokesman for the Ministry of Health said the issue of granting vaccinations in third countries was an EU issue. “Regarding DCC, decisions have been made at the European level with countries other than the EU.
‘The country needs to go through the process of connecting to the DCC.UK is not included in the list as it is not yet included in this process [of prospective countries].. As we said, Dutch people can get a free coronavirus test.
