Forms and brochures

Are you looking for a form or brochure? Here you will find all available publications sorted by theme. Click on a theme on the right to see the forms and brochures for that theme.

You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to open the forms and brochures.

From 1 June 2017 it is no longer possible to receive printed application forms and brochures from IND.

​From this date you can only download them from the website.  Legislation and regulations applicable to IND change several times a year and application forms and brochures need to be adjusted accordingly. By making them only available online, IND can quickly make adjustments and therefore ensure that the application forms and brochures contain up-to-date information.
