Visa Application Procedure
How to obtain a Schengen Visa
Application forms can be obtained at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Amman, or downloaded in word format from the link on the right. Please be aware that nonrefundable visa-handling fees will be charged on all applications handed in at this embassy, irrespective of the outcome of the application procedure. The Embassy does not take a decision on your application, this will be done by the Dutch Regional Support Office (RSO) based in Amman. The application with your passport will be forwarded to the RSO by the Embassy. Depending on the nationality and the compulsory Schengen Consultation, the processing time for your Schengen visa will be 14 days. For inquiries about the processing of your visa please contact the RSO by email:

The Schengen countries have harmonised the visa fees (also called handling fees). As a rule, you must pay the fee in local currency. Costs for all types of visa are € 60,-. For children aged between 6 and 12 the costs are € 35,-. Children under the age of 6 are free of charge. Visa applicants with the nationality of a country with which the European Union has entered or will enter into a visa facilitation agreement (Albania, Bosnia, Former Yugoslav Republic, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Ukraine, Russia and Serbia) will pay € 35,-.
Mandatory Schengen Travel Insurance
Upon submitting your visa application you will have to present the Consular Section a medical travel insurance valid for all Schengen countries with a minimum coverage of € 30.000 as well as confirmed return tickets. The EU Council in Brussels has decided to implement as from 1 June 2004 a mandatory travel insurance as a precondition for visa issuing. In principle this means that a visa applicant has to submit, together with his visa application for a short stay in the Schengen member states, proof of a valid personal or collective travel insurance covering:
- Expenses for repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical and/or
- Urgent medical treatment in a hospital
- The minimum value of the mandatory travel policy is determined at EUR 30.000,00
- Insurance premiums for these policies are charged by the insurance company and not by the diplomatic or consular representation
