Here we would like to guide you in preparation of visiting IDFA in Amsterdam and keep you up to date with local regulations.
IDFA will follow the Dutch corona measures and closely follows any updates on this if stricter policy is needed or loosened when possible. A more detailed overview of the practical implications of our corona policy will be shared later, for now we would like to inform you on some key aspects and basics.
What we foresee during the festival
Basic rules for everyone in the Netherlands
More (detailed) information can be found on the government’s official webpage about containing the spread of SARS-CoV-2.
If you develop symptoms while being in the Netherlands there are two things to do; stay home/in your accommodation & get tested with a self-test. With a positive test, if you feel better and have not had any symptoms for 24 hours, you can no longer infect others and it’s safe to go out again.
The main symptoms that often occur with COVID-19 and should be a trigger to get tested are:
We want to emphasize that we expect you check yourself if any travel restrictions are in place either by your own government or by the Dutch one. That said corona regulations for travelers to the Netherlands are largely lifted for those who are vaccinated with an EMA approved vaccine or one that is on the WHO Emergency Use Listing. You can check which travel restrictions (PCR test, health declaration) may apply for you here: Government.nl| Corona-Visiting the Netherlands.
There is no official list by the Dutch government which lists all the countries where there are travel restrictions for people traveling from the Netherlands. Please make sure you are aware what regulations are in effect when coming from the Netherlands back to your home country.
A lot of countries require a negative PCR to enter, there are numerous locations throughout the city. These cost around €80. For invited guests IDFA will arrange these.
