Can I extend my Schengen visa?

Travel Forums Europe Can I extend my Schengen visa?

I am a 17-year-old Australian who has been staying in Holland with my boyfriend the past few months during my gap year on a Schengen visa. I have decided that I would like to stay until I go to University in August next year (hopefully also in Holland).

I know I can't extend the visa that long! But I am applying for a British passport (which I am entitled to because my dad was born in the UK), so I will no longer need a visa. However, it is going to take 6 to 8 weeks to be issued, whereas I only have 4 weeks left on my visa.

Does anyone know of a way that I can get my visa extended for a maximum of two weeks?

Why don't you try to find information on the Netherlands Embassy website and in case you don't find, send them an e-mail. here's the URL:
