U.S. Consulate General Amsterdam, Netherlands, announced significant demonstrations are expected to occur on March 11, 2023, and advised visitors to avoid these crowds.

Furthermore, U.S. government personnel in Amsterdam have also been advised to avoid the pending, conflicting demonstrations near The Hague in Zuiderpark and around Koekamp near Central Station, including on the A12.

To help bypass the crowds, the Consulate advises U.S. citizens to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to receive digital security updates related to these events.

Or visit the U.S. Consulate General Amsterdam at Museumplein 19, 1071 DJ Amsterdam.

And to call 1-1-2 for emergency service from Dutch Police, Rescue, and Fire Departments.

Recently the U.S. Department of State reissued its Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution alert on March 9, 2023, highlighting the ongoing civil unrest in The Netherlands.

And from a health perspective, the U.S. CDC suggests various travel vaccines for visiting the Netherlands.
