International travel

Erasmus University Rotterdam follows the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The travel advice is continuously adjusted. On the website Netherlands Worldwide, of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the travel advice is updated.

Latest updates

Travelling abroad / internships / exchange/ field work to countries with code yellow/green (according to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) can continue. These colors can rapidly change due to the pandemic: a yellow country/region can suddenly change into a lock down situation with travel and/or education restrictions as a result. Travel wisely. Check this site before you leave to see what you need to arrange for your trip abroad, and when you return to the Netherlands.

More information about the COVID-19 virus can be found on the website of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

At present, more and more countries are allowing relaxations of previously adopted coronavirus regulations. Nevertheless, a sudden corona outbreak may require a country to take new measures to limit the further spread of the corona virus. Travel wisely. Therefore keep a close eye on the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs via: www.nederlandwereldwijd.nl.

Please note: EUR travel insurance does not cover damage caused by a corona infection, incurred in an area that was subject to red or orange travel advice at the time of departure. Up to 14 days after returning from a (private) trip from a risk area, in the event of complaints (also mild) you are expected to work from home for two weeks / not to come to the work location.

For all information about (Erasmus +) exchange and internships please check this page.

If you travel from an area with colour code orange/red, it is compulsory to show a negative COVID-19 test result. This applies to everyone aged 13 years or older, even if you have had a corona vaccination. The type of test you need and the requirements differ for each mode of transport. For the most up-to-date information, go to this page from Rijksoverheid.

In addition, as of 1 June 2021, home quarantine (staying at home) will be compulsory if you travel (back) to the Netherlands after a stay in certain countries with a very high coronary risk. The quarantine obligation also applies if you have been vaccinated. For more information about home quarantine, see the page of the Dutch government

Travellers from countries where health risks are comparable to, or lower than, those in the Netherlands may enter the Netherlands. If you want to enter or returning to the Netherlands, please check the checklist of the Rijksoverheid before you travel. In countries with a high risk level, it is compulsory to show a negative test result before you leave and/or a quarantine obligation applies upon arrival in the Netherlands. 

That depends entirely on the situation. Any questions? Ask the HR Corona Helpdesk: hr.international@eur.nl. The list of questions will be used to supplement the general online information.

When receiving students or guests from abroad, we also adhere to any restrictions imposed by the RIVM or the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs on entering The Netherlandse from certain areas. Additionally, a prohibition may be in place for people travelling from high-risk areas.
