Being Dutch, I have never heard of such law. I also doubt there is a law that would cover this, I would take it as a try to intimidate you. But also as a 'please really, really do not do this.' If caught out after you made the picture and before you had seen the sign, I would let them try to sue you. But if seeing the sign before you take the picture, do ...

I believe that since the central security changes last year, Willeke's answer is most likely incorrect for you (although as I've not been on an inbound flight from an "insecure" country since June 2015, when this all changed, I am happy to be corrected by someone with first-hand experience). Schiphol airport describes the changes in detail, but in summary: ...

Coming off the planes you come in the same halls as those going to the planes use. All of the airside that is 'non Schengen' is connected, if by a long(ish) walkway. That means that the first to arrive can go to the gate used by the second to arrive and meet there. Although at most of the airside space is open, there might be some parts of the airport still ...

The International Youth Hostel Association provides accommodation with meals provided and /or a kitchen where you can prepare your own food. Also a great opportunity of getting to know other guests. Book as soon as possible. Bruges is picturesque but not exactly alive and popping.

If Amsterdam has any place to sleep for €30 per night, grab it as soon as you sure you will travel there at the time. Double that is more likely and that only on early booking. I have no experience with Airbnb for Amsterdam, for all places I have checked their offers they came close to hotel prices, not hostels anymore. Amsterdam is one expensive city, I ...

I have travelled through out "Europe" may times on four wheels and two wheels and have never been stopped in-between countries. The so-called borders are closed and all countries have "free" movement through out the EU.

What you have is a common format residence permit. It looks very much like a Dutch national ID card (same format and general appearance, but the colours are different) and is actually a valid ID for many purposes within the Netherlands. It even says "Identiteitsbewijs" on the card itself, which is arguably a little confusing. What EU law calls a "national ...

It seems that you can. The RDW - the Netherlands Vehicle Authority - have a little bit of information in English on their website. Specifically (but confusingly), the "Using a foreign driving licence after becoming a resident of the Netherlands" page has a section at the bottom: A tourist in the Netherlands? Are you not settling in the Netherlands, ...

If you don't actually live in The Netherlands, so you are really a tourist, you can use your foreign drivers license. Quoting from the official government page: Tijdelijk verblijf in Nederland met buitenlands rijbewijs Neemt u aan het verkeer deel terwijl u tijdelijk in Nederland verblijft? Bijvoorbeeld tijdens uw vakantie? Dan moet u een geldig ...

In principle, I don't see how this could lead to a refusal, i.e. a negative decision. I don't see any basis for that in the regulation and can't see what refusal reason would apply. On the other hand, it's perfectly reasonable for the consulate to refuse to regard this as a single trip. You are kind of stretching the definition of a trip to save yourself a ...

Does my local health insurance work? If so must it be 30euro? No, your local health insurance does not meet the guidance for the Schengen visa program. The minimum required coverage is 30,000 Euros. You will have to purchase specific insurance for your trip. The Belgian consulate handles the Dutch cases and am told it almost auto rejects it. Is ...
