At present the Netherlands are on the amber list for UK, so before travelling to England you would needed to have done the following:

1. take a COVID-19 test – you must take the test in the 3 days before you travel to England

2. book and pay for COVID-19 tests – to be taken after arrival in England

3. complete a passenger locator form

You must do these things whether you are fully vaccinated or not.

When arriving in England, If you are fully vaccinated you must take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2.

This applies if you’re fully vaccinated under either:

the UK vaccination programme, or the UK vaccine programme overseas, or an approved vaccination programme in Europe or the USA - not all are recognised in England.

(It also applies if you are taking part in an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial in the UK or the USA, under 18 and resident in the UK, a UK Overseas Territory, the USA or one of the specified European countries).

If you will be in England for less than 2 days you still need to book and pay for a day 2 COVID-19 test. You only need to take the test if you are still in England on day 2.

If you are not fully vaccinated and If you do not qualify under the fully vaccinated rules, on arrival in England you must:

1. quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days

2. take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8

If you are in England for less than 10 days, you need to quarantine for the time you are here. You need to book day 2 and day 8 travel tests. You only need to take the tests if you are still in England.

Test to Release scheme

If you need to quarantine, you may be able to end quarantine early if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme.

more information can be found here:-

In regards ***** ***** whether you need to quarantine depends on if you were “airside” or “landside”.

‘airside’ - you do not pass through UK border control before you leave on your connecting journey

‘landside’ - you do pass through UK border control, but come back through it and leave the UK within a short amount of time (usually 24 hours).
