Study Visit to the UN-institutions in the Hague

Study visit for youth leaders/youth workers to UN-institutions and other international organizations in the Hague to learn about their work and develop a network of youth organizations interested in working on international projects!

We invite youth workers/youth leaders to join a Study visit to the Hague. The aim of study visit is to give youth workers/youth leaders the idea on the work of international organizations and develop new partnerships.
The Hague is one of the international centers for UN-institutions and other international organizations. During the visit participants will visit Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, International Court of Justice, International Criminal Court, Permanent Court of Arbitration and other organizations. During each visit the participants will learn about the work of the organization. The participants also will have the opportunity to learn how youth workers/youth leaders can get involved in the work of international organizations.
In addition to visiting international organizations, the participants will meet youth workers/youth leaders from other countries to discuss the possibilities of new projects together including the new projects where UN-institutions and other international organizations can be involved.
The visit will introduce the international organizations to youth workers/youth leaders. It will allow them to understand better their work and their role in society. The visit will contribute to personal and professional development of youth leaders and will let them to acquire new knowledge and skills which they can use in their work.

Visa

We provide a visa invitation for the visa to the Netherlands. Please note – visa invitation is not a visa – with the invitation that we will send, you will still need to go to the closest Dutch Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to provide other documents – usually those documents include passport, passport size photo, filled application form, insurance, proof of means, proof of work/study and other documents. The list of the documents might slightly differ depending on the country where you apply for a visa. Please check the website of the closest Dutch Consulate to see what is the list of the documents you need to prepare.

In most of cases before applying for a visa you need to make an appointment at the Consulate. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. We recommend you to contact the Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment.
The fee for the visa might differ depending on the country where you apply – you might have your visa free of charge or might need to pay for it 35 or 60 euro. Those are the fees in case you apply for a visa directly at the Consulate. If you apply via Visa Center of the Dutch Consulate, Visa Center, Travel agency or another organization – those organizations might charge extra fees for their services.

If you submit all the requested documents on time the chance for the rejection of a visa is very small. In our experience the visas are mostly rejected if an applicant provides false information to the Consulate. This could be the major reason for rejections. We kindly ask you to check the documents before the application and make sure you only provide the correct information to the Consulate and in that case you most probably will receive a visa without any difficulties.

And of course if you have any questions regarding the visa application procedure we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
