What to do when I get sick
In case you tested positive, follow the advice of the local health service and the measures that apply in that specific country. From the moment you have not experienced any corona related symptoms for at least 24 hours, you are able to travel (home) again.
What happens if the host country goes into lockdown?
If you want to return to the Netherlands, we will guide you as much as we can. However, we are not responsible for arranging your transportation or its costs. As a Dutch citizen, you can always return to the Netherlands. If there are entry restrictions from the country where you reside, you have to go into quarantine upon arrival in the Netherlands
On the rare occasion that there are no more flights, you can travel by train, Flixbus, or boat depending on the country. Mind that you cannot travel if you have corona (symptoms).
What kind of health costs does my insurance cover?
However, the basic insurance only covers costs up to the rate that is currently in the Netherlands. Is the care or treatment abroad more expensive than in the Netherlands? This means you will pay for the part that exceeds the Dutch rates.
What does my insurance cover when traveling to a country that is marked orange or red by the Dutch government? (upon department)
Costs related to extending your stay because of corona will be for your own expense.
You cannot consult your cancelation insurance to go back home earlier
Repatriation costs will not be covered for orange and red coded countries. It is always important to contact your insurance in case this happens.
If you are an international with a Dutch basic health insurance, or you are confused about the term “”Eigen Risico”” often referred to as “”excess”” or “”deductible””, please find more information on this page.
