Effective date: 1 June 2021

What changes?

Do you work in events, sports, or culture? From 25 September 2021 using an entry pass system will be mandatory for entrepreneurs in the hospitality and cultural sectors, as well as organisers of professional sports matches. The certificate should demonstrate that a person was not infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 at the time of testing.

This is a temporary measure to make it possible for these branches to reopen to the public sooner. A test certificate is valid for 24 hours.

Public services, such as public transport or municipal halls will never ask for a test certificate to let you enter.

For whom?

  • entrepreneurs in the hospitality sector
  • entrepreneurs in the events sector
  • organisers of professional sporting events
  • concert halls
  • museums
  • theatres

When?

This change in the Public Health Act (Wet publieke gezondheid, Wpg) has entered into force on 1 June.
