The Netherlands does not require a tourist visa for stays of less than 90 days. You will need a passport valid for at least 90 days beyond your planned date of departure from the Netherlands, and Planet Depos strongly recommends traveling with a passport valid no less than 6 months post your departure date from the Netherlands. You need 2 blank passport pages for your entry stamp. There are a few direct flights from the U.S. to the Netherlands, but if you are not on a non-stop flight, you will need to check any country or countries you pass through to determine if a separate transit visa is required.
