If you are from an EU country, you do not need a visa to travel to the Netherlands. You can come here for pleasure or work with absolutely no restrictions. If you are from a non-EU country, you may need a visa to travel to the Netherlands. Some countries are exempt, check the www.netherlandsandyou.nl website. If your country does require a visa, then you should apply at the Dutch embassy or consulate in your own country. There is a short stay visa, entitling you to stay for up to 90 days and long stay visas (MVV), which allow you to stay and apply for a work permit. You will need to provide information about your reason for travel and your ability to support yourself financially.
