Visa Information

It is the delegate's responsibility to investigate the visa requirements for the Netherlands and apply for a visa, if necessary


General information about visas for the Netherlands

You may need a short-stay Schengen visa if you want to visit the Netherlands for a  maximum of 90 days. This depends on your nationality. Visas must be applied for from the relevant Dutch embassy, consulate, or representing consular Schengen office in the delegate's country of residence. 

The nationality of the participants and delegates will determine whether or not they are required to apply for a visa. 

In most countries, the applications should be submitted to an external service provider's office. In some countries, the Netherlands is represented by another Schengen country for visa affairs. Please take note of the documents to be submitted when applying for a visa for business purposes. Visa application rules differ from country to country.
