Could somebody add a list of visa-free countries holders of a dutch passport can access? Like is done for Bulgaria and the U.S.

Pre-arrival visa required[edit]

The ONLY country coloured as non-visa-free in South America is Suriname. Suriname is coloured grey, meaning "Pre-arrival visa required". As a Dutch citizen, I find this VERY unlikely. Based upon the history of the relationship between the Netherlands and Suriname, I am almost certain that this designation is wrong. Seeing how many people from Suriname live in the Netherlands, this almost CERTAINLY is wrong. Seeing how Suriname used to be a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands until 1975 ... . I tried to find information on the minbuza.nl (in Dutch) site, but could not find it quickly enough and quit searching. This should be looked into. 24.160.69.161 (talk) 00:37, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Despite of the history, Dutch citizens Suriname require a visa to travel to Surnaime, just like Surinamese citizens require a visa to go to Holland. See [1]. The only exception are Dutch residents of Aruba or the NL Antilles. Passportguy (talk) 00:47, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
