For a visit to the Netherlands up to 90 days, visitors from nearly 60 countries only need a valid passport (including most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, and Japan). Nationals of most other countries need a Schengen visa, named after the Schengen Agreement that eliminated passport controls between 26 EU member states.
Please keep in mind that a visa application takes a lot of time. You are kindly advised to apply for this on time.
