Portugal, Netherlands latest EU countries to ease travel restrictions Access to the comments

EuroNews – Portugal and the Netherlands are the latest European countries to ease travel restrictions as COVID infections recede and the summer season approaches.

Dutch citizens and residents can, from Saturday, visit Portugal, Malta, Ireland, Thailand, Rwanda, the former Dutch colonies of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten and a large group of Greek islands.

The Netherlands operate with a colour-coded scheme and these destinations have now been put under code yellow. Travellers will thus not have to undergo self-isolation upon their return.

Mainland Greece and the island of Crete, however, remain designated code orange, meaning travel is only advised if absolutely necessary.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that Dutch travellers will still have to comply with local COVID-19 measures, including showing a negative test and self-isolating on arrival.
