You (the sponsor) have an asylum residence permit in the Netherlands. Your family member may travel to the Netherlands to live with you. After arriving in the Netherlands, a group of family members of refugees must register by appointment in Zevenaar. Find out when you need to make an appointment for your family member in Zevenaar.
From 1 December 2021, a group of family members of refugees will have to register at the location in Zevenaar instead of Ter Apel. This is only possible by appointment. Making an appointment is free of charge. You can make an appointment online for all your family members who come to the Netherlands. You can do this by entering the V-numbers and the first names and surnames of all your travelling family members in our appointment planner. Your counsellor from the Dutch Council of Refugees (VluchtelingenWerk Nederland or VWN) can help you to make an appointment. This appointment is only intended for registration purposes and not for collecting a residence document.
In the appointment planner you provide an e-mail. This could also be the e-mail address of your counsellor from VWN. You will receive a confirmation by e-mail from the IND when you have made the appointment. What if you make an appointment when you do not yet have a home or do not have an approved home? Then the IND will cancel the appointment. Your family member must then register in Ter Apel.
Has your family member collected their provisional residence permit (MVV) from the Dutch embassy? Then you can book the flight or travel for your family member to the Netherlands. Only make an appointment for your family member at the IND location in Zevenaar after you have booked their flight or travel.
What if the appointment made in Zevenaar cannot go through? For example, because your family member has to go into quarantine because of corona? Or because your family member arrives in the Netherlands later than planned? Then cancel the appointment via the link in the e-mail confirming your appointment. The IND can also cancel an appointment. This is the case, for example, if your travelling family member has to register in Ter Apel.
After cancelling an appointment, make a new appointment for your family member online on this web page as soon as this is possible. Your family member will live with you at your home until the day of the new appointment.
