The relations between South Africa and the Netherlands go back a long time. Over time many Dutch citizens have come to South Africa to build up a better future and have found a new home here. From the 60’s until the 90’s, many Dutch citizens supported the anti-apartheid struggle. The ANC held several conferences in the Netherlands.

The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands will be available to support Dutch citizens, companies, knowledge institutes and other organizations in their activities in South Africa.

Consular section offers services for foreign visitors to the Netherlands as well as Dutch citizens abroad. Use the menus on the left for information on applying for a Dutch visa or passport, legalising documents, taking the civic integration exam, acquiring or regaining Dutch nationality, and many other procedures.

Passports:
Passport applications can be submitted at the consular section of the Embassy in Pretoria, the Consulate General in Cape Town and the honorary consulate in Durban.

Passport fees have to be paid by bank- or credit card upon submitting of the application. The Consulate in Durban only accepts cash payments.

Dutch travel documents are produced at a central location in the Netherlands. For this reason, one will have to wait around two weeks between applying for a travel document at an Embassy or consulate and collecting it. The Embassy or consulate will inform you of how many days you will have to wait. In an emergency, an embassy or consulate can issue a temporary travel document (an emergency passport or a laissez-passer), on which you can leave the country. If possible, such a document is issued on the same day and otherwise within a few days. But remember that an emergency document will cost you extra money.

Important notices: The Honorary Consulate in Mbabane, Swaziland, is closed. Applications for visas and Dutch passports can be made at the Embassy in Pretoria, the Embassy in Maputo or the Consulate in Durban.

You are strongly advised to schedule an appointment for your passport or visa application at least four weeks before your intended date of departure.

Visa:
All applicants must appear in person.  Applications can be submitted at the consular section of the Regional Service Organisation (RSO) in Pretoria or at the Dutch consulate in Cape Town or Durban. Applications submitted at a Dutch Consulate will be forwarded to the RSO in Pretoria for processing. The minimum processing time for visa applications submitted in Pretoria is two working days. For applications submitted at the Consulate General in Cape Town or the Honorary Consulates in Durban the processing time is more or less five working days. For certain nationalities an approval from the appropriate authorities is required and applications will therefore take approximately two weeks longer to process.

Visa fees have to be paid by bank- or credit card (with exception of American Express & Diners) upon submitting of the application and will not be refunded if the visa is not granted or the application is withdrawn. The Consulate in Durban only accepts cash payments.

Dutch nationals living abroad are not required to register themselves, though you may do so if you choose. The Dutch mission will not register you if, for example, you contact them to renew your passport. If you have had your name removed from the Dutch Population Register, you are expected to register with the foreign municipality in which you live, if applicable.

  • 01 January - New Year’s Day
  • 21 March - Human Rights Day
  • March/April - Good Friday
