Following closely in the footsteps of France and Belgium, The Netherlands are voting in a law forbidding the wearing of face masks, traditionally found in Muslim countries. This means that the traditional Niqab Open link in a new window or Burqa Open link in a new window worn by Muslim women will be outlawed.

Helmet Niqab

But what that also means is that a full face motorcycle/scooter (integral) helmet will be outlawed as well.

You will be allowed to ride your motorcycle with it (apparently), but once you stop your motorcycle and get off, you'll need to remove the helmet, or if possible, open it (for modular helmets).

Failing to do so will cost you a fine.
