Applying for a long-stay visa (MVV) for residents of Iraq
If you want to stay in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days, you may need a residence permit. In many cases you will also have to apply for a long-stay visa before you travel to the Netherlands. This visa is also called an authorisation for temporary stay (MVV).
It is not possible to apply for this visa in Iraq. You can submit your application at the Netherlands embassy in Jordan, the Netherlands embassy and consulate-general in Turkey, the Netherlands embassy in Lebanon or the Netherlands embassy in Iran.
