Other services at the IND desks

Providing biometric information is also possible, but there are long waiting times for this kind of appointment. After making an appointment, we recommend to regularly check if an earlier time slot has opened up and to reschedule if possible. It often happens that the IND can produce a new residence card using the existing biometrics, and therefore many appointments are cancelled last minute.

Collecting a residence endorsement sticker or a return visa are not possible at the moment. You will keep their right of residence in the Netherlands even without a new residence document or sticker.

If your residence permit has expired or will expire when being abroad, and you have not been able to get a return visa at the IND desk, please note that you will need to get an entry visa at the Dutch representatives in the regarding country. Do keep in mind that not all Dutch embassies and consulates have reopened yet, and getting an entry visa might not be possible at the moment.
