Extension of residence permit in corona times

Can I extend my residence permit during the corona outbreak?

If your situation meets the conditions for an extension this is possible.

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

Please check our article “Obtain and collect residence permit during the coronavirus 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 you 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.

I hold a short-stay visa, but I am unable to leave the Netherlands. What must I do?

If you are in the Netherlands on a short-stay visa and unable to leave the country, you can only apply for a visa extension by telephone (088 0430430). Your visa extension is only valid in the Netherlands and will be registered in the European Visa Information System (VIS).

If you are in the Netherlands on a short-stay visa and unable to leave the country, you can only apply for a visa extension by telephone (088 0430430). Your visa extension is only valid in the Netherlands and will be registered in the European Visa Information System (VIS). 

If you have non-EU nationality and do not require a short-stay visa to visit the Netherlands, and you are exceeding the 90 days in 180 day period, you should notify the IND as well. You can use the same number, 088 0430430.

If you live in the Netherlands, we will be pleased to assist you with the extension of your residence permit. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you would like our assistance, or in case you have any questions.
