Visa and residence permit

Most students from outside the EU who want to stay in the Netherlands for more than 3 months need an entry visa. To check if you need a visa and/or residence permit, you should visit the Nuffic website.

The university will apply for your visa on your behalf. This procedure takes approx. 4 weeks. For nationals from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal the procedure will take several months. This because of strict legal regulations.

You will receive more information about the documents needed for the procedure as soon as you have been admitted by the department and we have received your application package.

The Dutch immigration service charges € 317 for the visa application and/or residence permit application. Before we can apply for your visa and/or residence permit we ask you to transfer € 317 to our bank account.

The International Office will apply for both your visa and residence permit before your arrival.
