The Netherlands also tightens restrictions for US travellers
Vaccinated travellers heading to the Netherlands will need to plan around a quarantine period after the country announced plans to tighten restrictions on the U.S.
The European Union member moved the U.S. into its “very high-risk” category on Saturday, which will prohibit entry among unvaccinated travellers from the U.S. and require testing and a quarantine period for those who are vaccinated.
Vaccinated U.S. travellers must now quarantine 10 days but can cut the isolation period short if they test negative for coronavirus on day five. Children 12 and under are exempt, according to the Government of the Netherlands’ website.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
