As our nation gradually recovers from the second wave of COVID-19, countries around the world are once again easing out travel restrictions imposed upon India. The Netherlands recently joined the list of such nations by lifting the ban on passenger flights from India.

DNA reports, “As per the Dutch Government ban on passenger flights from India that had come into force on April 26, 2021, has been lifted w.e.f June 01, 2021.” (The India embassy tweeted).
However, despite the Netherlands lifting its ban on passenger flights from India, it seems unlikely to travel until the situation in India is under control. The European Union (EU), which the Netherlands is a part of, has still banned non-EU travellers from countries with high-risk Coronavirus status. Unfortunately, India falls on the list of prohibited countries as of now.

While declaring the initial ban on Indian flights from April 26 onwards, the Netherlands tweeted, “The epidemiological situation on the ground (in India) is serious… the ban on passenger flights from India stands extended until June 1, 2021.”
