We've been getting a lot of emails lately and many people are trying to call us. The IND wants to be more reachable by telephone. That's why there are now more employees on the phone line and fewer employees answering emails. You may therefore wait longer for an answer than you are used to. Sorry for the inconvenience.

A recognized sponsor can check the status of an application via the Business Portal, the information line for recognized sponsors or the employee handling the case.

We handle your personal data properly. Please read more about our privacy policy. Your details will only be used to answer your question. In our answer we do not give information from your records at the IND. 


Who do you ask the question for?
Are you recognised as a sponsor?
Is the organisation for which you work or are the authorised representative recognised as a sponsor for labour related purposes, scientific researcher, study or exchange? And do you have a question about these subjects or about applying for recognition as a sponsor?
