New travel advice (again!): Italy turns yellow while Croatia goes green

Travel advice is changing once again — and there’s good and bad news. From tomorrow, Croatia is going green whereas Italy is turning yellow, reports RTL Nieuws.

This means travellers returning to the Netherlands from Italy will need to show a negative coronavirus test or a vaccination certificate to enter the country, starting on Sunday.

Yellow travel advice and new requirements

At the end of July, outgoing Health Minister, Hugo de Jonge announced that travel restrictions would be changing from August 8. From Sunday all travellers to the Netherlands have to show an EU Digital COVID Certificate when returning from a yellow country.

The certificate (also known as the CoronaCheck App) shows proof of full vaccination, a negative test result, or recovery from coronavirus within the past six months.

The certificate is already required of travellers coming from Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, or Andorra.

“From tomorrow [July 27], negative travel advice will no longer apply in the EU. Always check and get tested when you get home. Even after vaccination or if you have had corona. As of 8-8, you need a corona certificate when returning from a yellow country.”
