Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your ‘purpose of visit’ – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa or how long it will take to process your application, as this is entirely the prerogative of the department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands responsible for the processing of visa applications
You may refer to “Know Your Visa Types” to read more about the various visa types.
Complete your visa application form and affix your photograph. You may download the form from this website. Also, please mention your name along with surname of father and spouse, if applicable.

You can download the document checklists from the website (under 'required documents' under the different visa types). Submitting an incomplete application is at risk of the applicant and can lead to refusal or a longer processing time.
