Tips before you call

Make your own appointment with the IND

Would you like an appointment to visit an IND desk? For example, to have biometrics taken or to collect your residence document? You can make an online appointment with the IND by yourself.

Check the status of your application in My IND

Has the decision period of your application not yet expired? Then we cannot give you any more information. We are still processing your application. Follow the status of your application in My IND.

Keep your V-number or case number available
