Brits heading to the Netherlands will no longer have to quarantine from 25 February as EU countries continue to ease COVID restrictions.

The Dutch Government confirmed the mandatory requirement will be lifted even for travellers from high risk countries.

But regardless of vaccination status, passengers must still present a negative PCR COVID test taken 48 hours before arrival or within 24 hours for an antigen test.

All arrivals aged 13 and over must also have received their second dose of the COVID vaccine within 270 days in order to enter the country.

Those who had their second jab more than 270 days ago must be boosted.

‘For the most part we are no longer basing travel advisories on countries’ coronavirus situations,’ the Dutch Government’s Director of Consular Affairs Dirk Jan Nieuwenhuis said.

Until the new rules kick in, Brits must self-quarantine for 10 days which can be halved with a negative COVID test taken on day five.
