Incresed shipping costs foreign members

Starting from VISpas 2024, an increase of €2.95 for shipping costs will apply to VISpas holders who do not live in the Netherlands. This increase has already been implemented in 2023 for new international members who register through
International postage rates are four times higher than postage within the Netherlands. In addition to this, mail from the Netherlands to other countries is comparatively less likely to successfully reach its destination. As a result, Sportvisserij Nederland is unfortunately forced to implement this increase.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. We wish you many more great fishing adventures in the Netherlands!
