Moment of applying for renewal of a residence permit and applying for a permanent residence permit

The moment of applying depends on the type of permit and the application. On the front of your residence permit you can find which permit you have under 'bijzonderheden'.

Would you like to file one of the following applications?

  • Application for renewal of a temporary asylum residence permit
  • Application for a permanent asylum residence permit

Then you may file your request within six months before the date on which your residence permit expires. If you file your application earlier, IND will not be able to assess your application. It may then be rejected.

Example: your asylum residence permit expires on 1 August 2018. You can apply for renewal of your residence permit or for a permanent asylum residence permit on or after 1 February 2018.

Always file your application before the date on which your residence permit expires.

Would you like to file one of the following applications?

  • Application for renewal of a temporary regular residence permit
  • Application for a permanent regular residence permit

Then you may file your request within three months before the date on which your residence permit expires. If you file your application earlier, IND will not be able to assess your application; it may be rejected.

Example: your regular residence permit expires on 1 August 2018. You can apply for renewal of your residence permit or for a permanent regular residence permit on or after 1 May 2018.

Always file your application before the date on which your residence permit expires.
