Visa & Customs

If you need an invitation letter to apply for a Schengen Visa, please register as participant via this Indico site (Home / Registration).

During the registration process, indicate that you need a Visa invitation letter and provide the requested information.

We will perform a verification with you and you will eventually receive the invitation letter directly from NIKHEF, the local organiser of the FCC Week in Amsterdam.

You may inquire about the process via the fccw2018.secretariat@cern.ch mail address.


The Netherlands are part of the Schengen Agreement area. Find information about this area here.

Information about Visa requirements can be found on the webpage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Visas for the Netherlands

Rules to apply for a short-stay Schengen visa here.

When you apply for a visa at a Dutch embassy or consulate, you must pay a fee. You can find the fee on the fees page. If you apply through an external service provider, such as a visa agency, you will have to pay an extra fee to the provider.
