About the Consulate General
The United States Mission in the Netherlands consists of two elements: the United States Consulate General in Amsterdam and the United States Embassy in The Hague.
The U.S. Consulate General in Amsterdam
The U.S. Consulate General in Amsterdam provides assistance to American citizens residing in or visiting the Netherlands and visa services for temporary visitors and immigrants to the United States.
The American Citizen Services Unit helps American citizens with passport applications and renewals, reports of birth for children born in the Netherlands, voter registration, applications for Social Security numbers, federal benefits, income tax forms, child custody issues, and notarial services. The unit also provides emergency services for American citizens in distress.
The Visa Unit processes nonimmigrant visas. Nonimmigrant visas are processed for persons who seek short-term visas to the United States, such as tourist visas, business visas, student visas, crew visas, and temporary work visas.
The Immigrant Visa Unit processes applications for permanent residence in the U.S.
The Consulate General is closed on Embassy and Consulate Holidays, and every last Wednesday of the month.
The American Embassy in The Hague
The American Embassy in The Hague promotes strong bilateral ties between the United States and the Netherlands and works actively to increase cooperation on counter terrorism, enhance U.S. economic prosperity, and fight international crime and drugs.
It carries out these tasks by working with the Netherlands as a NATO and coalition partner; by promoting shared goals between the U.S. and the EU, of which the Netherlands is a member; by advocating U.S. trade policy goals and U.S. business and commercial interests; and by working with law enforcement agencies in the Netherlands to fight transnational crime.
The American Embassy in The Hague has no Consular Section.
Only people who have an appointment, can visit the U.S. Embassy in The Hague. You need to bring your photo ID (passport or driving license). Cellular phones and other electronic equipment are not allowed.
