Making an appointment online

Would you like to visit an IND desk? This is possible by appointment only. This way, you know exactly when it is your turn and there is no waiting time.

  • Collecting your residence document or original document

    The IND will inform you (or your sponsor) by letter when your residence document or your original document (e.g. your passport or birth certificate) is ready for collection. After receiving this letter you can schedule an appointment online.

  • Biometric information (passport photo, fingerprints and signature)

    In order to make your residence permit, the IND needs a passport photo, signature and in some cases fingerprints. These biometrics will be taken at an IND desk.  For this, you schedule an appointment online at an IND desk.
  • Residence endorsement sticker

    A residence endorsement sticker is placed in your passport. This sticker is proof that you are allowed  to await your procedure in the Netherlands. It also states if you are allowed to work. You can schedule an appointment online to collect a residence endorsement sticker.

  • Return visa

    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. You can schedule an appointment online to apply for a return visa.

  • DNA test 

    You applied for family reunification and have to demonstrate by means of documents that a family relationship exists. If these documents are not sufficient or missing through no fault of your own, the IND can send you a letter in which a DNA test is being offered.
    Unfortunately, it is not possible at the moment to schedule an appointment (online or by phone) for a DNA-test. As soon as this will be possible again, you will read about it here.
