Foreign travel advice from the ministry

The travel advice provided by the Netherlands’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs will help prepare you for any safety risks you’ll be exposed to during a stay in a foreign country. It includes, for example, regions that are safe to travel to and regions that you should avoid. Sometimes there will be safety risks, so don’t take any chances. If you are advised to avoid a particular country, only travel there if it is absolutely necessary.
