  • Highly skilled migrant

The low rate does not apply if the Turkish citizen has a residence permit for study, medical treatment or for spending leave in the Netherlands. Nor if the family member and the Turkish citizen are unmarried and do not have a registered partnership.

The low rates also apply if you have another nationality in addition to Turkish nationality, for example Dutch nationality. Are you applying to stay with a Turkish citizen in Netherlands and does this person also have Dutch nationality? With the application, please then also send a copy of a valid Turkish passport or ID card. State in an explanation that you are doing this in order to qualify for the low fee rate.
