Travelling from Abroad to the Netherlands

For the most up to date information as to the requirements to enter The Netherlands from abroad, and to determine your home country’s risk classification status, please visit the Netherlands COVID-19 site.
Please note there are also requirements to enter MRO Europe. Visit this page to find what you need.
If you’re not travelling from countries that have status very high risk in the Netherlands please disregard the below - it won’t be relevant to your trip and go directly to the requirements to enter MRO Europe.
All attendees travelling to The Netherlands by air need to complete the Health Declaration Form

Travelling from a “very high-risk area”:

If you are travelling from a country designated as VERY HIGH RISK (including the US and the UK), you may still enter the country but your entry requirements will depend on your vaccine status.

Fully Vaccinated Travellers: If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine. From 22 September onwards fully vaccinated travellers will no longer have to self-quarantine upon travelling from a very high risk area. However you must follow these steps:

  • 1- PASSPORT: We know it’s been a while, but don’t forget this one!

  • 2 - PROOF OF VACCINATION: Remember to bring your proof of vaccination and Vaccine Declaration Form to show that it’s legal for you to enter the country. Download the Vaccine Declaration Form.

  • 3 - NEGATIVE COVID TEST: You must be able to show a negative COVID-19 test result. This applies to everyone aged 12 or over and even if you have been vaccinated or have a proof of recovery. The type of mandatory negative test result you need depends on the mode of transport you use. Click here for details

  • 4 – HEALTH DECLARATION FORM: if you are travelling by air you must fill in a health declaration (only when aged 13 or above) and carry it with you. Some airlines allow you to complete this health declaration digitally when you check in. Download form here.

Partial or Non Vaccinated Travellers: IIf you are only partially or non-vaccinated, you are still able to enter the Netherlands but you must follow the below steps:

  • 1- PASSPORT: We know it’s been a while, but don’t forget this one!

  • 2 - NEGATIVE COVID TEST: You must be able to show a negative COVID-19 test result. This applies to everyone aged 12 or over and even if you have been vaccinated or have a proof of recovery. The type of mandatory negative test result you need depends on the mode of transport you use. Click here for details

  • 3- LETTER OF INVITATION: Travelers from Very High Risk countries are required to complete a quarantine on arrival in the Netherlands, but we can confirm that fully vaccinated delegates travelling from the UK, US and other countries that have the status very high risk in the Netherlands  will qualify for an exemption from this quarantine and so will not have to quarantine.

Each partially or non-vaccinated person attending MRO Europe from a Very High Risk Country must present a letter, formally confirming your attendance and the fact that you qualify for a business travel exemption to the quarantine. Please bring this letter with you to prove that you are an eligible business traveller, and carry it with you when you’re in the Netherlands in case you’re asked for it. To make sure we get the details in the letter right, the first and last names on your letter will need to match the first and last names on your passport (middle names not required).

If you require a letter,  go to this link to download the template for the letter of invitation when you complete your registration for the event. You can register for the event here

If you are an exhibitor or sponsor you can download the template for the letter of invitation from the Exhibitor Resource Center here.

Please update the sections of the letter, highlighted in yellow, with your personal information.

If you have questions, please contact [email protected]

We recommend attendees refer to this page as well as their own government guidance before travelling.
