Later this month, the Dutch authorities will lift the requirement for people to keep a distance of 1.5 meters. At the same time, corona passports will be introduced.

The 1.5-meter rule will be removed on September 25. The move will allow more people to be present at concerts, theaters, restaurants, and cafes. Furthermore, football matches will be held in packed stadiums again for the first time since the spring of 2020.

But from the same date, it will be mandatory to present a corona passport to enter restaurants, sporting events, and cultural events. Guests must then prove that they have been vaccinated, tested negative, or recovered from coronavirus.

“This is not the day when everything will be as it was before the coronavirus. There are still too many cases of infection and too many people who are still hospitalized,” Prime Minister Mark Rutte said. He pointed out that there is great uncertainty about how the autumn situation will develop.

Many measures will remain in place, including face masks on buses, trains, and airports.
