Online Request for documents or data

Request for documents or personal data by post


  • You can also send a letter in which you ask for documents or personal data. The letter must contain this information.
  • When asking for documents: a description of the documents you would like to receive. 
  • When asking for personal data (GDPR request): a description of the personal data you would like to receive, change or delete. Or a description of the personal data you would like to object against.
  • Your name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth and signature.
  • A copy of the front and back of your valid identity card or Dutch residence permit. Or a copy of the pages with the identity information of your valid passport. You may make the passport photo and your citizen service number (in Dutch: Burgerservicenummer or BSN) invisible. Find out on the Central Government Website how you can make a copy of your proof of identity safely (only available in Dutch). 
  •  You can also have someone else make the request for you. However, you must then authorise this person. A solicitor does not need authorisation. Except if this solicitor is not involved in your ongoing procedure at the IND. Neither do the parents or legal representatives of children younger than 18 need authorisation. Send a copy of the passport of the authorised person and a signed Authorisation request for documents or information
  • If applicable: a copy of the certificate of death of the person whom the documents or data belong to.
