Schengen visa for Netherlands

edited November 2013 in Europe

I am travelling to Netherland and Germany for work. I will be staying in Germany for a couple of months. however my visa is issued from Netherland. This is where I will be landing first before proceeding to Germany via plane or train on the same day. Will there be any issue in this?

Secondly, I also want to know if my wife and child join me for 10-15 days, will she only need a tourist visa or do I have send an invitation letter as i will have a business visa as I will be working in germany for couple of months and staying in a hotel.

What will be the best course of action. Please do advise. 



  • Your Schengen visa will be fine for both the Netherlands and Germany.

    If your family is travelling separately, they will only need tourist visas.
