Biometric information (passport photo, fingerprints and signature)
For your residence document the IND requires a passport photo, fingerprints and a signature.
Collecting your residence document
The IND will inform you (or your sponsor) when your residence document or your original document, such as your passport or birth certificate, is ready for collection.
Residence endorsement sticker
A residence endorsement sticker is placed in your passport. This sticker is a proof that you are allowed to await your procedure in the Netherlands. It also states if you are allowed to work.
Do you want to travel abroad when you temporarily do not have a valid residence permit? Then sometimes a return visa is needed to return to the Netherlands.
