The Dutch Missions in the UAE have outsourced all visa applications and procedures to VFS Global. 

1. Please be informed that VFS Global time slots are very full due to summer season, which is a very busy period of the year. Unfortunately, the Dutch Missions are not in any position to interfere in the appointment system of VFS Global. 

2. Kindly note that visa processing time is normally 15 calendar days, however due to high season period, the visa processing time currently takes longer than expected. The Dutch Missions are not in any position to update you on the visa application status. This can only be done by tracking the application number.
