There is no need to be a WALS-member to register. The registration fee includes a one-year membership.



Students full-time enrolled in a college or university can register as a student for the reduced rate. However, students with a regular income like part-time students, post-doctoral students or PhD candidates are NOT eligible for the discounted student rate, as they do not meet the requirements above. Proof of status from the institute verifying full-time status is required to process your application.



For a visit to the Netherlands up to 90 days, tourists from nearly 60 countries only need a valid passport (including most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, and Japan). Nationals of most other countries need a Schengen visa, named after the Schengen Agreement that eliminated passport controls between 26 EU member states. For more information about visa, please click here.

Please keep in mind that a visa application takes a lot of time. Therefore, apply for this on time.
