This depends on your nationality. A short stay visa is called a Visum Kort Verblijf in Dutch (VKV). Please check the IND website to see if this type of visa applies to you. If it does, you will have to apply for a VKV yourself at the nearest embassy or consulate of the Netherlands in your country of origin or the country where you’re lawfully residing.
