The Netherlands today lifted the ban on passenger flights from India that was imposed on April 26 in view of rising cases of the coronavirus in India as a deadly second wave of the virus swept through the country.
"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 01 June 2021," the India embassy in Amsterdam tweeted.
However, there is still a European Union (EU) ban on non-EU travelers from countries where the coronavirus situation is considered to be very high risk.
The Netherlands had on April 26 decided to suspend India flights as "the epidemiological situation on the ground (in India) is very serious..."
The Netherlands Embassy in India tweeted in April 2021 that the "ban on passenger flights from India has been extended until June 1, 2021."
