Staying in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days (long-stay visa)

If you want to stay in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days, for example to work, study or live with family, you may need a long-stay visa and/or a residence permit. A long-stay visa is also called an authorisation for temporary stay (MVV).

Whether or not you need an MVV and/or a residence permit depends on things like your nationality and the purpose of your stay.

Due to the coronavirus, until further notice, you cannot apply for a visa at an embassy or a consulate-general.
