Updated Regulations on Travelers Returning from Abroad – Netherlands Designate Germany as a Risk Area

December 28th, 2020 | by

The state of North Rhine-Westphalia has updated the regulations of the Corona Einreiseverordnung (Coronavirus Entry Ordinance).

For travelers returning from a risk area, the requirements of the Federal Ministry of Health regarding the reporting obligation still apply.

In addition, travelers must be tested within 24 hours of their return at the latest.

The special regulations for travelers from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of South Africa regarding mandatory testing and a quarantine order also  continue to apply.

Exemptions to these regulations apply to cross-border commuters who are not subject to mandatory testing. In case of doubt, please contact the responsible health department.

Individuals who are subject to testing are prohibited from entering RWTH until the (negative) test result is announced.

The Netherlands have designated Germany as a risk area. Travelers entering the Netherlands from Germany must immediately enter a ten-day quarantine. Exemptions for cross-border commuters (for example employees or students of RWTH) apply.

Students who need a certificate should contact the Registrar’s Office. Employees should contact the respective divisions of the human resources department.
