Covid travel warning escalated for Greek islands, Italy and others
A number of European countries that previously had green travel advice will receive a yellow travel advice on Friday based on advice from the RIVM, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported.
This concerns Italy, the North Aegean islands in Greece, Estonia, Iceland, San Marino, and Vatican City. This is due to the rising coronavirus figures in those countries.
The Ministry warned that the rules regarding travel advice will also change from Sunday. A yellow travel advice then means that travelers from these countries aged 12 and older must show a coronavirus certificate when returning to the Netherlands. It could be a vaccination certificate, a negative test result, or proof that they recently had the coronavirus and recovered. The negative test may be a PCR test up to 48 hours old, or an antigen test up to 24 hours old. This already applies to people coming from Spain, Portugal, Cyprus or Andorra.
People who have been to a country with a yellow travel advice are urgently advised to do a self-test after arrival or to be tested at the GGD.
Croatia's color code will change from yellow to green on August 6, according to Foreign Affairs.
