Welcome to TLScontact

This site provides information on the visa application process for: Citizens or residents of China travelling on short-term visas to the Netherlands.

The TLScontact application procedure, established in conjunction with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Beijing, aims to provide the best visa application service. Our aim is to help you prepare your visa application and assist the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Beijing in processing applications in a timely manner.

The applications received by TLScontact are transferred to the Embassy or Consulate General of the Netherlands, which has the exclusive right and responsibility to deal with the applications, to decide to grant or deny a visa, to request additional information or documents and/or to submit the applications for further decision to the competent migration authorities in the Netherlands. TLScontact staff is therefore in no way involved in the decision making concerning the visa applications and is at no point informed about their outcome. Passports are returned by the Embassy or Consulate General of the Netherlands to Visa Application Center in sealed envelopes.
