Applications for visa for the Netherlands and the Caribbean parts of the Netherlands are accepted at the Joint Visa Application Centre in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
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 and how long it will take to process your application, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Consulate Support Office in The Hague, The Netherlands.
The standard processing time for a Schengen visa will take a minimum of 3 weeks. However due to peak season the process may take longer than expected. Here the embassy is not in a position to update you on the visa application status, this can only be done through the tracking application number which you would have received, once you apply for the visa.
Please ensure you read the security regulation notices before you visit the Visa Application Centre.Previous Next
