On this website, you will find the most recent information. It also includes a link to a quarantine check for travelers that helps you find out what you are required to do if you travel to the Netherlands from your country of residence. This page offers a quick overview of the travel regulations of countries that you might transit through on your way to the Netherlands.  

In case you are required to quarantine upon arrival, we strongly advise you to travel to the Netherlands early to comply with the national health and safety regulations.
