Netherlands now open to American tourists

The Netherlands is now open to American tourists. No tests, quarantine or proof of vaccination. You will have to fill out a health declaration but that can be done online.

I know what you mean, but perhaps US residents might be more precise.

US citizens (I'd call them American) who live in the UK (there are many thousands), for example, are governed by the regulation that tourists from the UK are not welcome, no matter their citizenship.

I wonder if the problems in Missouri will cause any backtracking?

Thanks for the information.

I am a U.S. citizen who has booked the Norwegian Prima from Amsterdam on August 17. 2022 and will be spending two nights in Amsterdam before sailing.

I am a senior citizen who travels alone. Does Amsterdam have discounts for foreign seniors?

I am fully vaccinated.

I will be looking for a hotel close to Passenger Terminal. I travel light and can walk up to about two miles. I require free wi fi and wish for a good breakfast included. The good breakfast is on my wish list.

I traveled from the US, on my Irish passport, back to the Netherlands yesterday. I had my Rapid (and expensive) PCR test in hand and my health declaration. The Detroit gate crew had no interest in either one. They wanted my vaccination card. After looking it over, they put a little sticker on my passport and I was good to go.

I have been following the NL government site, but found nothing to indicate this change.
Nothing was checked at immigration, but my passport.

Confusing times.

Kate, can you please provide a bit of detail on the process of getting your COVID test when you returned from AMS? We will (hopefully) be returning to AMS and Europe late November and I have not quite figured out the COVID testing details upon return just yet (although we have some time yet). Thanks.
