European holiday hotspot lifts Covid restrictions for Brits | The Sun

ANOTHER holiday destination has scrapped their Covid rules for Brits.

The Netherlands was one of the last countries in Europe to have restrictions still in place.

Brits needed to be fully vaccinated to visit – this rule is no longer in place.

Its latest statement reads: "The Dutch government has decided to lift the EU entry ban for the Netherlands as of September 17, 2022.

"Given the current epidemiological situation in the Netherlands, the government feels that for entry to the Netherlands, the EU entry ban is no longer proportional."

The latest update is great news for UK tourists heading to destinations such as Amsterdam.
