The Netherlands Embassy has introduced new travel restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and its new variants.

The restrictions include flight bans for countries where there is “a very high prevalence of COVID-19 or risk of the new variants.

According to a Statement from the Embassy, although a flight ban has not been imposed on Ghana, travelers from the country to the Netherlands will have to undergo an additional antigen rapid test before departure.

This requirement is in addition to the already obligatory PCR-test, taken 72 hours or less before departure. Exempted from the rapid test requirement are Diplomatic passport holders, Heads of State and Cabinet Ministers and minors below the age of 13 years old.

The Embassy said the number of exempted categories of eligible travelers to the Netherlands will be further reduced. These new travel restrictions take effect today at midnight.
