Nine new orange travel recommendations, including for Brussels, Paris, Mallorca and Ibiza | NOW


The Netherlands will adjust the travel advice for Brussels, Paris, Mallorca and Ibiza to color code orange. Travelers who are in these areas during the night from Saturday to Sunday (after midnight) are urgently advised to go into home quarantine for a fortnight after returning to the Netherlands.

The travel advice is updated at 00:00 on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and also applies to the French Bouches-du-Rhone (the area around Aix en Provence and Marseille), Madrid, the Balearic Islands (including Ibiza and Mallorca), Burgos, Salamanca, Almeria and Navarra.

The corona crisis has disrupted daily life in countries color-coded orange. A travel advice will remain orange if the country does not yet have the corona virus under control or where the virus has revived, Dutch tourists are not yet allowed to come or if a mandatory quarantine is imposed upon arrival.

If the orange code applies to an area, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommends traveling to that area only if it is really necessary. A holiday trip, for example, is not.

These are not the first countries and regions whose travel advice has recently been adjusted. Last week, travel to Norway, the United Kingdom and several regions in Spain was not recommended.

In an earlier version of this article wrote ‘in the night from Friday to Saturday’. This has been corrected to ‘in the night from Saturday to Sunday’.
