Visa and Schengen Visa

For visits to the Netherlands shorter than three months, or for tourism a Schengen visa needs to be applied for.

A Schengen visa can be applied for in the country of residence/origin at the local Dutch Embassy or Consulate. At the time of application evidence of the purpose and length of travel must be provided. In general proof of health insurance is also requested.

The Schengen area comprises all countries of the European Union plus Norway, Iceland and Switzerland but excluding Great-Britain, Ireland, Bulgaria, Romania and Cyprus.

In some cases the local Dutch authorities will deny a visa application. The most frequent reason for the denial of a Schengen visa is insufficient evidence of economic or social ties to the country of origin/residence. The assumption being that the applicant will settle in the Netherlands (or one of the Schengen countries) upon arrival – which is not the purpose of the Schengen visa.

In practice it has been proven that an objection to the denial is worthwhile. More often than not the visa denials have been shown to be unsubstantiated.

Kroes Advocaten can file a notice of objection on your behalf.
