Usual service delivery in Turkey
The Netherlands Embassy in Ankara and the Consulate General in Istanbul remain open as usual. The decision of the Dutch Cabinet to withdraw the Dutch Ambassador to Turkey doesn’t have any consequences for the Dutch service delivery in Turkey.
The decision was taken because there is not yet a perspective to normalizing the bilateral relations. Dutch and Turkish citizens are still welcome however at the Embassy in Ankara and Consulate General in Istanbul for consular services like passports or consular statements, or emergency assistance.
Let’s use this opportunity to remind our working hours: the Embassy and Consulate General are open from Monday till Friday from 9.00 – 17.00 hrs. The Embassy’s Consular Department is open from Monday till Friday from 8.30 – 16.00 hrs. (with appointment only); the Consulate General’s Consular Department is open from 8.30 – 11.30 hrs. (with appointment only).
