In order to receive a Netherlands visa, you will have to apply for one at the appropriate Dutch embassy or consulate in your country. Some countries may not have to apply for a visa at all – see here to find out if your country does!

The requirements for a Dutch visa may vary based on the duration and purpose of stay but there is a standard set of documents everyone is required to provide.

Along with the required documents, everyone applying for a Dutch visa will have to pay a Netherlands visa fee. This fee is paid at the time of application and is non-refundable even if your application is rejected. However, some people, such as children under six years of age, may be exempt from paying a Dutch visa fee.
