Dutch Embassy UK: consular services closed until 6 April 2020

The worldwide development with regard to the COVID-19 virus has drastic consequences for the services of Embassies of the Netherlands worldwide. All appointments for consular services at all Embassies - the one in London included - have been cancelled. These measures are in place until, at least, 6 April 2020.

The temporary suspension of services means there will be no intake of passport applications and short-stay and long-stay visa applications (provisional residence permit, MVV), neither via the Embassy in London, nor via external visa agencies (VFS Global). Other services that will not take place from 19 March until 6 April include the sampling of DNA, issuing DigiD, legalisation of documents and the facilitation of integration exams.
