Travel abroad is a risk for the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Countries can also suddenly take measures that make entry and / or exit difficult or even impossible. The Dutch cabinet strongly advises NOT to travel abroad unless strictly necessary.
Do you want to enter the Netherlands from Sri Lanka? Then in many cases you will need a negative COVID-19 test result to travel to the Netherlands by plane, international train or bus connection or ship. This is one of the Dutch measures to prevent the import and spread of the corona virus.
The local government has taken measures to reduce the risk of spreading the corona virus (COVID-19). There is an entry ban for foreign travelers. Travel to Sri Lanka only if necessary. Are you from the Netherlands? Then you will be obliged to go into quarantine in Sri Lanka for at least 14 days. After a stay in Sri Lanka, you will go into home quarantine for 10 days when you return to the Netherlands.
