IND fee residence permit reduced
The IND government fee charged for a permanent residence permit is reduced from EUR 401 to EUR 130. This reduced IND fee is for the EC-permanent long-term resident permit (Directive 2003/109) and the Dutch national permanent residence permit. Reason for this reduced fee is the Judgment of the European Court of Justice of 26 April 2012 (C-508/10). The Court ruled that the Dutch fees where “excessive and disproportionate”. The reduced fee will be retroactively applied from 26 April 2012.
