Today I got my schengen visa approved which I had applied for before the pandemic. I had plans to visit the Netherlands. Sadly, the Netherlands has a travel ban effective till April 19th and my visa expires on April 25th.

Let's say I am unable to utilize my visa, would I have to apply again with all the fees and everything, or can I write a letter to the embassy for an extension?
