Appointment residence endorsement sticker

Last update: 12 September 2023

A residence endorsement sticker is placed in your passport. This sticker is proof that you are allowed  to await your procedure in the Netherlands. On this page you make an appointment at an IND Desk to apply for a sticker.

Are you awaiting a first asylum application? Or did you apply for extension of your temporary asylum residence permit? You cannot get a residence endorsement sticker. You have to apply for a Foreign Nationals Identity Document (type W).

When apply for a residence endorsement sticker

You can only make an online appointment for a sticker in the following situations:

  • You have applied for an extension of your regular residence permit. You have received a letter from the IND confirming receipt of your application. Your current residence permit has expired and you did not yet receive a new residence document.
  • You have applied for a different (change purpose of stay) regular residence permit. You have received a letter from the IND confirming receipt of your application. Your current residence permit has expired and you did not yet receive a new residence document.
  • You have applied for a first permanent residence permit (regular or asylum). You have received a letter that the IND has received your application. The permit you now have has expired and you have not yet received a new residence document.
  • You have applied for a first residence permit without an mvv. You have received a letter from the IND confirming receipt of your application. You did not yet receive a residence document.
  • You submitted an application to stay with a Union citizen (verification against EU law). The family member with whom you are going to stay does not have the Dutch nationality. You have received a letter from the IND confirming receipt of your application.
  • You submitted an application to stay with a Dutch Union citizen (verification against EU law). You have received a letter from the IND confirming receipt of your application.
  • You submitted an application to stay with your minor Dutch child (Chavez). You have not yet received a decision on your application. The letter from the IND stating that you are allowed to live (and work) in the Netherlands is no longer valid (In the letter you can find the date until which it is valid). And an employer or government organisation does not accept that (expired) letter as proof of lawful stay.
  • You registered an objection or appeal and you are allowed to await the procedure in the Netherlands.
  • You applied for a provisional ruling and you are allowed to await the procedure in the Netherlands.
  • Your present residence endorsement sticker is about to expire. You did not yet receive a decision or a new residence document.
  • You are staying in the Netherlands within the context of EU intra-mobility. You want to make an appointment to receive a residence endorsement sticker or to invalidate the sticker you received earlier.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

  • Your valid passport (or other travel document).
  • Your appointment code. You will receive this in an email confirmation when you make an appointment online.
  • Your current (expired) residence document, or
  • The official report of loss or theft from the police (in case your residence permit has been lost or stolen).

Appearing in person

You must apply yourself for your residence endorsement sticker at the IND desk. Children under 18 years are required to attend together with a parent or legal representative when applying for their residence endorsement sticker.
