You are a parent of a minor Dutch child. You wish to live in the Netherlands with your child. You yourself are not a national of the EU, EEA Member States, or Switzerland. You need a residence permit to live with your minor Dutch child. What are the conditions for this residence permit?
This application costs € 58.
The application form lists the documents that you have to enclose with the application.
You have to have official foreign documents legalised and translated into Dutch, English, French or German.
The IND aims to have the residence document ready for you within 2 weeks after the decision. You receive a letter when you can collect the residence document. For this, you have to make an appointment online at the IND desk stated in the letter. Keep in mind that it is not always possible to visit an IND desk at short notice. Therefore, please schedule an appointment in time.
Check to see if the information on the residence document is correct while you are still at the IND desk. If something is incorrect, inform the IND staff member at once.
If you are staying in the Netherlands for more than 4 months, you have to register him in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) in the municipality you are going to live.
To register with the municipality, your child needs a valid legalised and translated birth certificate. Take this therefore with you when you travel to the Netherlands.
Anyone living in the Netherlands must take out health insurance. You do this within 4 months following your arrival in the Netherlands.
The back of your residence document states whether you may work in the Netherlands. Your employer does not need a TWV for you. Your residence document states arbeid vrij toegestaan, TWV niet vereist (work permitted free from restrictions, work permit not required).
Is your residence document damaged, lost or stolen? In that case, have the residence document replaced.
Is your residence document due to expire soon? You cannot extend your residence document. Instead you apply for Verification against EU law again. You submit the application to an IND desk. You have to make an appointment for this.
With the residence permit for staying with a minor Dutch child, you cannot apply for permanent residence for EU citizens (duurzaam verblijf), a regular permanent residence permit or a residence permit as a long-term resident EC. Also, it is not possible for you to apply for Dutch citizenship.
Public order is peace and order on the street and in public spaces. The government organises and controls this peace and order in society. Someone who is a danger to the public order is someone who disrupts this order, for example, someone who commits an offence. The IND therefore checks whether an individual has any registered convictions. We also check whether that person is currently a serious threat to society.
A TWV is a work permit. The employer applies for a TWV with UWV (Netherlands Employees Insurance Agency). UWV examines among other things if there is no employee with the Dutch, EU/EEA or Swiss nationality that is qualified for the job.
