Thank you for protecting yourself and other travellers at the airport by wearing a face mask, keeping a safe distance, washing your hands frequently and using hand sanitizersWe recommend checking the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to and the measures taken by your airline.

ALERT: Please note that according to a new measure implemented by the Dutch government as of 23 January 2021, in addition to a negative RT-PCR test result, all passengers coming to the Netherlands must present also a negative COVID-19 antigen test result before their departure to Amsterdam. The test must be performed no later than 4 hours before boarding the aircraft. Passengers can undergo the antigen test directly at the airport at the testing point in the connecting corridor between terminal buildings, which operates daily from 4:00 a.m. to midnight. However, we recommend checking the available provider's capacity online on the GHC Genetics’ website. More information about testing can be found here.

We ask all passengers to Amsterdam who are about to undergo a mandatory antigen test at Václav Havel Prague Airport to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours before departure. More important information  HERE
