Since Monday 15 June, all passengers flying from a Dutch airport must bring a health certificate. Passengers are also required to wear a non-medical face mask during check-in, security checks and boarding. In almost all airlines, passengers must also carry one on the plane. Some airlines distribute them for free, but most do not. Make sure you have enough masks, also for the return trip.Traveller public health declaration NL
