  • EU entry ban now applies to UK residents
    European Union and Schengen country nationals and residents plus members of their families, as well as residents of third countries on the list established by the EU can presently travel to the Netherlands. Please note this list is subject to change, according to developments regarding Covid-19.

    The situation has changed for (British and non-British) UK residents, as the United Kingdom no longer is an EU country and is now subject to the EU entry ban.

    For countries under the EU entry ban, there is only a limited number of exemptions (where it ís possible to travel to the Netherlands).

    Visit the relevant page on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website to view the lists of countries, to learn more about the exemptions and to see if you can / must apply for a visa.

    Please note: your application will only enter the decision phase if it fulfills all Schengen visa requirements and explicitly and clearly meets the criteria for an exemption.

  • Attention: holding a Travel Medical Insurance (TMI) is a requirement to apply for a Schengen visa. The TMI has to cover any expenses that may arise in relation to repatriation for medical reasons and/or emergency treatment during the visa holder’s stay. Expenses made as a result of pandemic situations (including Covid-19) cannot be excluded from coverage. If your TMI excludes the coverage of pandemic situations, your application may be refused.

    As a result of the corona crisis the Netherlands has closed its Visa Application Centers until further notice. All visa application appointments from 18 March 2020 onwards are cancelled.

  • It is not possible to extend a visa. Not even if, due to circumstances, the visa expired unused. You will have to apply for a new visa.
