U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands
The U.S. partnership with the Netherlands dates back to the American Revolution, which the Netherlands supported.
The United States established diplomatic relations with the Netherlands in 1782; one of our oldest, continuous bilateral relationships. The excellent bilateral relations are based on close historical and cultural ties as well as a common dedication to individual freedom and human rights.
The United States and the Netherlands share similar positions on many important issues and work together both bilaterally and multilaterally in such institutions as the United Nations (UN) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
The U.S. Mission in the Netherlands consists of two elements: the American Embassy in The Hague and the U.S. Consulate General in Amsterdam.
The United States Embassy in The Hague
The American Embassy in The Hague promotes strong bilateral ties between the United States and the Netherlands and works actively to increase cooperation on counter terrorism, enhance U.S. economic prosperity, and fight international crime and drugs.
It carries out these tasks by working with the Netherlands as a NATO and coalition partner; by promoting shared goals between the U.S. and the EU, of which the Netherlands is a member; by advocating U.S. trade policy goals and U.S. business and commercial interests; and by working with law enforcement agencies in the Netherlands to fight transnational crime.
The American Embassy in The Hague has no Consular Section.
The U.S. Consulate General in Amsterdam provides services for American Citizens and Visa Services.
Only people who have an appointment, can visit the U.S. Embassy in The Hague. You need to bring your photo ID (passport or driving license). Cellular phones and other electronic equipment are not allowed.See more
