Information for Ukrainian nationals in the Netherlands
The IND has revised its policies around visa's for Ukrainian nationals in the Netherlands. Full information is available here.
It is now possible for Ukrainian nationals looking to obtain a 90-day visa for the Netherlands (MVV) to pick up the visa at a Dutch embassy or consulate in another country. Please contact your IND case officer for more information.
Please note that Ukrainian nationals with a biometric passport have an automatic visa upon arrival in the Netherlands. Only those with non-biometric passports need to apply for an MVV.
