Since February 22, the Dutch airline KLM has once again been operating between Colombia and the Netherlands. Due to the temporary travel ban imposed by the Dutch government, only flights from the Netherlands to Colombia were allowed and no flights for passengers from Colombia or any other South American country were allowed on Dutch soil.

The Netherlands still continue with stricter measures due to the high number of COVID-19 cases in the country, but travelers with the Dutch nationality can travel to and from Colombia without any problems. In addition, the rule also applies to Dutch residents with a D1 visa, nationalities from Schengen countries with flight connections, medical staff, aviation staff and merchant shipping. 

Dutch travelers must take into account the fact that a PCR or LAMP test (72 hours before arrival) is mandatory upon arrival in the Netherlands and Colombia. Just like taking an antigen test 4 hours before boarding. In addition, KLM offers the following website https://klm.traveldoc.aero/ with all necessary information before, during and after traveling.
