The Customs Administration of the Netherlands is in contact with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service of the Netherlands in order to facilitate your visa application.
A valid 'single entry' visa allows you to enter the Schengen area once. You are allowed to stay in the Schengen area for 90 days in any 180 day period. During these 90 days you are allowed to travel to and stay in all Schengen countries. Are you travelling to the Schengen area via another country? Then you have to prove that the Netherlands is your final destination.

They are different from the visa requirements, e.g. PCR test. Check the website Travelling to the Netherlands from abroad | Coronavirus COVID-19 | Government.nl
