All visa applications in Japan for the Netherlands are taken in and issued only by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Tokyo. The Consulate General in Osaka cannot provide this service anymore.
When to apply at the Netherlands’ Embassy
To apply at the Embassy, the main destination or period of longest stay within the Schengen area must be the Netherlands. Every applicant must appear in person to apply.
By decision of the Council of the European Union of 1 June 2006, the handling fee for Schengen visas (up to 90 days) as of 1 January 2007 will be the equivalent in Japanese Yen of 60 Euro.
