Getting a Covid vaccination or test

Are you interested in how to get a COVID test? Would you like to find out if you are entitled to a vaccination?

Even if you don’t have a Dutch BSN (Citizen Service Number) or residence permit you have the same access as Dutch citizens.

Both testing and vaccination are free of charge. Anyone staying in the Netherlands who has Covid symptoms can get a test. Make sure, however, that you do not infect other people.

Red Cross information site

The Dutch Red Cross recently launched a site that informs internationals in 6 languages on Covid-19 testing and vaccination in the Netherlands.

The information appears on special internet pages with videos in English, Turkish, Arabic, Portuguese, Chinese and Polish.


These pages also provide numbers of WhatsApp helplines in these languages. Internationals can easily pass that information on to each other via the mobile phone.

    What happens if I get my first vaccine here, but then have to travel to the US Afro several weeks.

    Will it be OK to get the second prick there?

    What will have to be done to reconcile the 2 so I present as fully vaccinated?

    Incredible that the page is not in Spanish, being the second language of the world. It deserves a protest to the page.
