New border restrictions for passengers travelling to the Netherlands came into effect from Saturday 23 January 2021.
Passengers travelling to the Netherlands must:
- Provide proof of a negative PCR COVID test no more than 72 hours before departure
- Self-isolate for 10 days on arrival
Passengers will not be allowed to board the train at St Pancras International if they’re unable to provide proof of the test.
It was recently advised that customers aged 13 years and over must also present a negative rapid COVID test (antigen or LAMP) taken on the day of departure. At this current time, guidance and rules can change quickly and implementation of this requirement is now being further assessed by the Dutch authorities. We expect a further announcement soon. Until this time, customers will only require a negative PCR test to travel. We will update our information when confirmation of the additional antigen test requirement is received. PCR tests and, rapid antigen tests when required, can be booked with our partner London Medical Laboratory at London St Pancras International and various locations in and around London. Click here to find out more and book a test. Wherever you take your test, we strongly recommend that you allow plenty of time to get your results before you arrive at the station. As before, only essential travel is permitted to the Netherlands. We advise customers to carefully check the latest rules.
