Welcome to the website of the Visa Application Centres for The Netherlands in Saudi Arabia. This site provides information on procedures applicable to all nationalities who need a Schengen visa to travel to The Netherlands or the Caribbean parts of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

  • 22 October 2020

    European Union, Schengen country and United Kingdom 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.

    For countries still under the EU travel ban, there is 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 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.

  • Temporary visa category partner in long-distance relationship

    A new temporary short-stay visa category ‘partner in long-distance relationship’ has been created by the Netherlands.

  • Additional Covid-19 fee and mandatory passport return by courier

    2 Euro Covid-19 fee

    For the time being, until 31 December 2020 (subject to prolongation), the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs has given VFS permission to charge an additional ‘Covid-19 fee’ of 2 euros (or the equivalent in local currency) per application. This non-refundable allowance will be levied online or at the VAC – whichever scenario is applicable in your specific country.

    Passport return by courier

    Until further notice, the use of a courier service for returning your passport(s) is mandatory. This measure has been taken to reduce the number of people in a particular Visa Application Centre.

  • Attention: holding a Travel Medical Insurance 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. Inclusion of pandemic situations should be explicitly mentioned in your TMI. If your TMI does exclude the coverage of pandemic situations, your application may be refused.
  • Note: Due to Covid19 , passport courier is mandatory for all applicants.
