The Netherlands (Entry Airport: Amsterdam)
Effective immediately, AmaWaterways will only be welcoming guests who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 on board its ships.
For your general information, below are the requirements for travel with AmaWaterways to the Netherlands:
From September 22, the quarantine rules for travel to the Netherlands will change. Vaccinated travelers from the United States, United Kingdom or other very high-risk areas no longer need to be quarantined. Vaccinated US guests must still present a negative PCR test conducted within 48 hours of departure to the Netherlands OR a negative Antigen test conducted within 24 hours of departure to the Netherlands.
Early morning September 3rd, the Netherlands’ government placed the United States in a category of countries that may have to quarantine upon arrival. At this time, our sailings have not been suspended and will still operate with modifications to the itinerary.
Please note, for travel to the Netherlands until September 21, vaccinated travelers from the United States, United Kingdom or other very high-risk areas currently need one of the following:
- A negative PCR test result collected no more than 48 hours before departure to the Netherlands
- A negative Antigen test result collected no more than 24 hours before departure to the Netherlands
We will also be providing all guests with a support letter via email. You must have one of the above documents, your original CDC proof of Covid-19 vaccination (or equivalent), and your cruise and flight itineraries all printed out and ready to share as you arrive at the airport.
Travelers are required to present a Public Health Declaration which must be completed before your departing flight.
At this time, you will also be required to complete a Quarantine Declaration Form within 7 days of arriving into Amsterdam. You will need to tick the box that says “I fall into one of the exemption categories”. (Please note: you will not be asked to specify a category, however the category is “Staying in the Netherlands for a short period of time.”)
In accordance with the new regulations, for travel until September 21st, we have adjusted our itineraries. All guests impacted by these temporary regulations have been contacted.
Additional Forms vary depending on the airline you are traveling with and guests must reconfirm with their airline 7 days before departure.
