Authorization for temporary stay

If you want to live in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days, you must apply for a residence permit. A condition for this is a long-stay visa or authorization for temporary stay(MVV). With this special visa you can travel to the Netherlands. You apply for the long-stay visa and the residence permit together. The long-stay visa is therefore not a residence permit.

Your nationality determines whether you need a long-stay visa or not. For most nationalities, you will only receive a residence permit if you have a long-stay visa. You do not need a long-stay visa if you come from one of the following countries:


– Australia

– Canada

– Japan

– Monaco

– New Zealand

– Vatican CITY

– United Kingdom

– United States

– South Korea

– Switzerland

– Countries from the EU or EEA

There are also situations in which you do not need a long-stay visa. For example, if you are family of a citizen of the EU, EEA or Switzerland.
