The IND is a transparent organisation that readily provides an insight into the work instructions used by its staff.
Below you will find an overview of the work instructions. These instructions are explicitly not policies, but procedural instructions. They are therefore not meant to substitute the provisions set out in the Aliens Act Implementation Guidelines 2000. There may, though, be well-founded reasons to provide a customised solution in an individual case and, as such, to deviate from the instruction. The work instructions are only available in Dutch.
