EXTENDING YOUR RESIDENCE PERMIT

If your residence permit is almost expired and you are not finished with your studies yet, you will need to extent your residence permit.

You cannot do this yourself directly with the IND.

WHEN TO TAKE ACTION

You need to contact AUAS Immigration Affairs when there is less than three months left on your residence permit. Usually you will receive a reminder letter from the IND or you can check this yourself by looking up the expiry date on your residence permit card. You cannot extend your residence permit earlier than three months prior to the expiry date.

After contacting AUAS Immigration Affairs you will receive the extension procedure e-mail. In this e-mail you will be informed about the documents and payments you need to hand in. Please note that you also need to proof that you have sufficient financial means to sustain yourself. For more information visit our proof of financial means page.

TRAVELING AFTER YOUR RESIDENCE PERMIT IS INVALID

If your residence permit is expired, but you are in procedure of receiving a new one, you are not residing illegally in the Netherlands. However, traveling will be more complicated. You might need a return visa to travel and return to the Netherlands. More information can be found here.
