Do I need to apply for a visa or residence permit?

If and for which immigration procedure you have to apply depends on your nationality. Please check our website to see if you require an entry visa and/ or residence permit.

There are two different immigration procedures:

  • Only a residence permit                
  • Entry visa + residence permit

Please be aware that both procedures need to be arranged before your arrival in the Netherlands. It can take up to 6 weeks before your application is approved by the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service.
