Exemptions from the requirement for an mvv

If you want to apply for a residence permit for the Netherlands, your nationality determines if you need an mvv. In some situations, you are exempt and you do not need the mvv.

When do I not need an mvv?

You do not need an mvv in the following situations:

  • You are a citizen of one of the following countries:
    • Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Monaco, Vatican City, United States of America, or South Korea.
    • An EU/EEA Member State or Switzerland.
  • You are going to live in the Netherlands with a family member of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland. You yourself have a nationality for which an mvv would be mandatory.  You can apply for a verification against EU law.
  • You have a valid residence permit in the Netherlands.
  • You had a valid residence permit in the Netherlands. You now no longer have it. You submit a new application for residence within 2 years after your previous residence permit has expired. You have lived in the Netherlands for the whole time during that period of 2 years.
  • You have a valid residence permit for another Schengen country. You have a recognised sponsor in the Netherlands and you meet all conditions. In this case, your family members also need not apply for an mvv.
  • You have a residence permit as a long-term resident EC issued by an EU Member State. In this case, your spouse and/or minor child also need not apply for an mvv. You must, however, already have lived together with them in the other EU country.
