Newly designed page for applying for a residence permit for your partner

Last update: 8 May 2020

‚ÄčThe page 'Spouse, registered or unregistered partner' has been redesigned completely. The page also has a new title: Residence permit for your partner.

The new design arranges information according to the steps in the application process:

  • preparing the application;
  • what will happen to the application after receipt by the IND;
  • what you need to do after receiving the decision; and
  • what your rights and obligations are after receiving the residence permit.

When you are preparing the application, the IND will assist you. By answering questions, you are only given the information that is important to you. You can also make a checklist of documents. This way you know exactly which documents you need for your application.

The IND noticed that customers who wanted to have their partner come over to the Netherlands found it difficult to find and understand the information. The IND hopes that the new design will make it easier for you to find and understand the information.
