You don’t need a Schengen visa for the Netherlands if you live in Malta. If you don’t live in Malta, find out what to do.
I live in Malta
You don’t need a Schengen visa for the Netherlands if:
- you are a Maltese national
- you live in Malta and have a valid Maltese residence permit
- you are in Malta and already have a valid Schengen visa
You will need other documents to travel to the Netherlands. The checklist for travelling to the Netherlands tells you which documents you need and what goods you can and cannot bring with you.
I don’t live in Malta
What you can do depends on your situation.
If you are in Malta and need a Schengen visa for the Netherlands for one of the following situations, you can apply for this visa at the French embassy in Valletta:
- You didn’t need a visa for Malta but do need one for the Netherlands. You have to travel to the Netherlands on short notice and didn’t know this when you travelled to Malta.
- Your Schengen visa has expired or almost expired but you must urgently travel to the Netherlands, for example for medical reasons or following the death of a family member.
If you are in Malta and your Dutch residence permit has been lost or stolen, or has expired, and you need a visa to return to the Netherlands, you cannot apply in Malta. You will need to go to the Netherlands embassy in Rome, Italy.
