Netherlands requires truckers travelling from UK to complete ‘quarantine declaration’
Coronavirus restrictions are slowly being relaxed across Europe, making life easier for both travellers and lorry drivers. However, due to the spread of the delta covid variant in the UK, truckers travelling from the UK to the Netherlands should fill in a ‘quarantine declaration’ in order to be exempted from quarantine.
As the Dutch transport association explains, the United Kingdom has been designated as a very high-risk area by the authorities in the Netherlands. The spread of the “worrying delta variant” is cited as the reason behind the decision.
As a result, travellers from the UK entering the Netherlands will be required to go into quarantine. Fortunately, truck drivers and other persons working in the transport of goods are exempt from the quarantine obligation. The same is true when it comes to the need for a test. This also applies for both short and long stays.
Those who haven’t filled in a quarantine declaration form may be fined €95.
The form is available in English and can be downloaded here.
