Can I use my non-EU proof of Coronavirus vaccine or negative test (DCC/QR code)?

Lots of locations in the Netherlands, including restaurants and cafés, ticketed events, and cultural institutions require you to show proof of vaccination or a negative Coronavirus test to enter. 

The Digital Covid Certificates (DCC) from over 33 countries are now accepted in the European Union (and indeed the Netherlands). These include the United Kingdom, Turkey, United Arab Emirates; Singapore, Israel, and more. 

The full list is available on the website of the European Commission

If you have a DCC from one of these countries, you may present it upon entering a location in the Netherlands. Please note that you may be required to provde your identity using ID.
