A big announcement from the Dutch government is that quarantine restrictions have been restricted for overseas visitors in time for October’s FESPA Global Print Expo in Amsterdam, which is scheduled to organize from October 12-15, 2021. However, FESPA has also announced that the restrictions on fully-vaccinated travelers to Netherlands from designated ‘very high-risk countries’ will be lifted from September 22, 2021. It means that print service providers (PSPs) and sign-makers from these countries can travel to FESPA Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo 2021 in Amsterdam without fear of needing to quarantine on arrival.
Travellers who have proof that they are fully-vaccinated with an EU-approved vaccine can now enter Netherlands freely, with no mandatory quarantine period. This proof can be provided by means of the EU Digital Covid Certificate (DCC) or equivalent certification from non-EU countries. The list of very high-risk countries currently includes the United States, United Kingdom, Israel, India, South Africa, Thailand and much of Latin-America.
