Restrictions on fully-vaccinated travellers to The Netherlands from designated ‘very high-risk countries’ will be lifted with effect from 22 September 2021, ahead of Fespa Global Print Expo 2021 at the Amsterdam RAI on 12-15 October. It means show visitors from the UK will no longer have to quarantine on arrival.
Travellers who have proof that they are fully vaccinated with an EU-approved vaccine will be able to enter The Netherlands freely. This proof can be provided by means of the EU Digital Covid Certificate (DCC) or equivalent certification from non-EU countries.
Fespa CEO Neil Felton said of the development: “We know that there’s a strong appetite from printers all over the world to get back to our live event, refresh their industry knowledge and see for themselves the hundreds of product innovations that will be seen in public for the first time at the show. There are now no practical travel barriers for most printers who want to be at Fespa 2021.”
Proof of double vaccination will be required for access to the event. The Dutch government’s announcement was accompanied by other adjustments to social distancing measures, and Fespa’s Covid arrangements will be updated accordingly.
