Have you already submitted an application for a residence document? Or have you received a letter inviting you to exchange your old residence document for a new one? Then you can you make an appointment online to have your biometrics taken, not before.
The IND needs your passport photo, signature and your fingerprints to prepare your residence document and to confirm your identity. This biometric data may not more than 6 months old. Your biometrics will be taken at an IND desk or expat centre of your choice. You need to make an appointment online.
When the IND receives your application for a residence document, the IND will send you a letter (acknowledgment of receipt). This letter will inform you that you need to have your biometric data taken. Please, make an online appointment as soon as possible. Without your biometrics the IND cannot prepare you residence document.
There is no fee for having your biometrics taken.
You will not be charged for providing biometric information.
