From these dates onward, passport and visa applications can only be submitted at the Dutch consulates in Miami, San Francisco, Chicago and New York and at the Netherlands Embassy in Washington DC.

    The Dutch honorary consuls in Orlando, Atlanta, Boston and Los Angeles will continue to support Dutch business communities and help Dutch citizens in need. Please read the following news releases carefully:
