Can I extend my residence permit during the corona outbreak?

You can be reassured, the IND still accepts applications for extension of residence permit in the Netherlands. Therefore you can still extend your residence permit during the corona virus outbreak, under the condition that you meet the usual criteria for extension.

Can I provide biometric information and collect my new residence permit?

Please check our article “Obtain and collect residence permit during the corona virus outbreak” for the answer.

What happens if my residence permit expires and I have not yet collected my extended residence permit?

Even after the expiry of your current residence document or residence sticker you still have the rights associated with it. You can continue working, but we advise to keep the IND confirmation of receipt with you at all times, and the IND positive intention letter if your application has already been approved.
