The minimum processing time of a visa application is 15 days. Applicants are advised to leave enough time between the appointment date and travel date to have their visa application processed. No guarantees can be given on the visa application’s return date as delays may occur.
The Dutch Embassy is not in a position to update on the visa application status. This can only be done through the tracking application number you received when you applied.
Please note that your passport will be kept during the visa application process.
