As a university in Amsterdam we are taking our responsibility to prevent the spreading of COVID-19 serious. Unfortunately traveling from areas with a high number of COVID-19 cases can potentially increase the spread of the virus.

  • You cannot travel to the Netherlands if the Dutch government has indicated you are traveling from an 'orange' or 'red' coded area.
  • This advice must be checked on the date of your travel to the Netherlands.

Unfortunately, due to the Dutch corona crisis measures we cannot welcome you in person as we normally would. We have however organised alternatives to ensure you will still experience a soft landing in Amsterdam!
