You must self-quarantine for 10 days if you travel to the Netherlands after staying in a very high-risk area, including where there is a variant of concern. If you get tested on day 5 you might be able to shorten the quarantine period. Some travellers are exempted from the mandatory quarantine. You can find all the information on the website of our government.
Student Experience expects residents to act responsibly and to self-isolate in accordance with the recommendations from the Government of the Netherlands.
Please let us know if you have to go into self-isolate. We can help you wherever possible, like getting your groceries/medicine delivered to your studio so you won’t have to go outside.
What to arrange before arriving by plane?
If you arrive at Schiphol or another airport you may be invited to get tested at the airport; however, you will still need to self-quarantine. Please follow the guidance provided at the airport.
When you arrive in the Netherlands you can travel to the city of Amsterdam using public transport or a taxi. In both cases you need to wear a (non-medical) face mask and keep 1.5 metres distance from other people.
