Recent Updates: The Safety and security tab was updated – terrorism

There is a threat of terrorism and attacks could occur at any time. Targets could include:

  • government buildings, including schools
  • places of worship,
  • airports and other transportation hubs and networks
  • public areas such as tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shopping centres, markets and other sites frequented by foreigners

Always be aware of your surroundings when in public places. Be particularly vigilant if attending sporting events and during religious holidays and other public celebrations, as terrorists have used such occasions to mount attacks.

Since 2013, the Dutch government has maintained the threat level in the Netherlands at “substantial”. This is the second-highest level in the Netherlands’ four-level rating system. While stressing that there are no reliable indications that terrorist networks are currently plotting attacks in the Netherlands, the Dutch authorities raised their levels of vigilance given their assessment that there is a realistic possibility that an attack will take place in the Netherlands. Consult the Ministry of Security and Justice for more information on threat levels.
