For those who are planning to attend the RWC conference in person in Amsterdam, please note
that since March 23, essentially all COVID restrictions in the Netherlands have been lifted; for details see
this update by the Dutch government
This means that even for indoor events with more than 500 participants like RWC, there are
no checks for vaccination or checks for a recent test at the entrance and there are no requirements to wear masks during the event.
There is also no mask requirement in any other public spaces including most public transportation.
Nonetheless, we all still need to take common-sense precaution measures.
Importantly, we ask that you do not enter the event if you feel unwell, have any COVID-19 symptoms, or test positive.
In addition, despite the more relaxed situation in the Netherlands, we have guests from many countries with
different COVID norms, so we recommend and encourage all in-person participants of RWC 2022 to
wear medical or FFP2/N95 masks during the event (except in the catering area in Grote Zaal);
minimize physical contact with other attendees; and
regularly (ideally daily) test for a COVID-19 infection using antigen self tests.
We will have a limited supply of masks and self-tests available at the reception desk,
but we generally recommend to bring well fitting masks yourself. The RWC venue has
Information about their ventilation system available online.
Antigen self tests are available in the Netherlands in supermarkets for less than 5 EUR.
If you need an invitation letter to apply for a visa, please contact the general chairs.
Note that we send invitation letters only if you are registered for the event and have payed the registration fee.
