In some cases a visa may be necessary for a short stay in the Netherlands. This is called the Schengen visa. This visa enables you to stay 90 consecutive days in the Netherlands or other Schengen countries. Whether or not you need a visa depends on your country of origin. See the list of countries requiring a visa.
You will only be granted a visa for the Netherlands if you are sufficiently insured for emergency medical help. You must have insurance that:
- Covers the costs of repatriation (return to your country of origin) for medical reasons or for urgent medical care
- Has a minimum cover of €30,000
- Is valid for your entire stay
OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance meets all these requirements.
