My wife and I are planning to travel from Austria to the Netherlands on 31st January 2021 via train. Our train journey has two layovers : Frankfurt (~ 50 minutes) and Utrecht (~ 20 minutes).
What exactly are the COVID-19 related requirements (from the German government and the Dutch government) for this train journey?
I tried looking through the official websites of the German government and the Dutch Government, but I couldn’t find clear answers. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
- I am moving to the Netherlands to start a job at an university there.
- I hold an Austrian residence permit (and an approval letter for the Dutch residence permit from Dutch Immigration Service (IND))
- My wife holds Austrian visa D (and an approval letter for the Dutch residence permit from Dutch Immigration Service (IND))
- We haven't been outside Austria for 2.5 months now.
Edit: We are planning to get a test done (on 29th January) and we will carry the results with us.
I have some clarity now about the requirements from Netherlands. However I am not so sure about the requirements in Germany.
In particular, are there any additional requirements from Germany if we only have a stopover in Frankfurt and we have the negative test results and the onward train tickets to the Netherlands? Do we still have to fill the digital entry registration?
