UPDATED – further changes to rules for entry to England from 19 July 2021
From 19 July, travel restrictions for passengers travelling to England from Belgium, the Netherlands and other Amber list countries (excluding France) will change.
If you’ve been fully vaccinated by the NHS at least 14 days before travel, you’ll no longer need to quarantine on arrival in England. The same rule will apply to your dependents or if you are under the age of 18 and are usually resident in the UK.
You will still need to complete a Passenger Locator form, provide proof of a negative COVID test before travel, and take a COVID test 2 days after arriving in England.
Only the main NHS app or an NHS COVID pass letter will be accepted as proof of full vaccination.
The UK government has announced that arrangements for accepting vaccine passports from other countries will be announced at a later date.
If you’ve not been fully vaccinated more than 14 days before travel or if you’re travelling from France, current rules will continue to apply. You will still need to complete a Passenger Locator form, provide proof of a negative COVID test before travel, quarantine on arrival for 10 days and take COVID tests on days 2 and 8 after arriving in England.

New departure and arrival times for travel from the Netherlands, Brussels, and Lille until 5 September 2021
Due to engineering works and to give authorities in Brussels enough time to carry out security checks before departure we have had to adjust the timings of the 9145 train from Amsterdam to London.
