06/04/2021 From March 16, 2021, the rules for entry the Netherlands change.

Passengers in transit from the Netherlands (passengers continuing their journey to another destination) only need to show the negative result of the NAAT test (PCR swab) issued within 72 hours prior to transit through the country. An additional quick test is no longer necessary.

Passengers (aged 13 and over) departing from Italy with their final destination in the Netherlands have two options:
- Submit the negative result of the COVID-19 NAAT test (PCR swab) carried out within 72 hours before arrival in the Netherlands + the negative result of the rapid COVID-19 antigen test carried out within 24 hours before boarding the flight, or
- Submit the negative result of the COVID-19 NAAT test (PCR swab) performed within 24 hours before boarding the flight.

For more information on the rules of access in the Netherlands and the documents required for boarding, we kindly ask you to consult the website of your airline and the website of the Government of the Netherlands.

To meet the needs of passengers departing to Amsterdam, Bologna Airport has activated a rapid antigenic swab service, open everyday from 8.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and from 2.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.

The swabs will be carried out by the company Air Medical of Turin in a mobile structure located near the "PIAZZALE DEI SERVIZI", the bus stop area outside the Terminal.

To facilitate the registration and reduce waiting times, we recommend you to do the pre-registration, by filling out the form of Air Medical.

Passengers departing to Amsterdam can present themselves directly at the buffer point too, without a reservation, showing their ID and the travel document, but always on time to be able to carry out the check-in operations before the check-in closes.

The result of the rapid swab will be available in 15 minutes and in the event of a negative result, the passenger will be issued with the documentation required by the company to fly. The cost of the tampon is € 40, to be paid directly to the Air Medical operator.
