Provisional Residence Permit (MVV)

An MVV is a visa for stays in the Netherlands lasting longer than three months.

Foreigners intending to reside in the Netherlands need to arrive with a valid MVV in their passport. Without a valid MVV a residence permit cannot be requested.

Exceptions to the MVV requirement are citizens of the United States of America, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and United Kingdom. Furthermore, citizens of the European Union, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Lichtenstein are also exempted from this requirement.

TEV-procedure

Foreigners who need the MVV visa can use the Admission and Residence Procedure (TEV). This TEV-procedure is a procedure by which no longer two separate applications for the MVV and the residence permit has to be submitted. Once the MVV visa has been issued under the TEV-procedure, the residence permit will be automatically granted. The sponsor in the Netherlands can submit the MVV visa and residence permit application for the foreigner in the Netherlands.

When being applied for, the purpose of the MVV needs to be included in the application. The residence permit can only be granted for the purpose for which MVV was granted.

A fast and successful MVV visa application procedure stands or falls with a complete application. We are happy to help you apply for the MVV visa and residence permit.

A residence permit and MVV visa are quickly arranged by us and at a competitive rate. Kroes Advocaten has excellent contacts at the IND.
