LONG TERM VISA (MVV)
If you wish to come to the Netherlands for more than 90 days, you have to apply for a Provisional Residence permit (mvv) and/or a residence permit at the Immigration- & Naturalisation Service (IND) in the Netherlands. An mvv is a visa that allows you entry to the Netherlands. You or your sponsor apply for an mvv and a residence permit at the same time. This is called the Entry and Residence Procedure (TEV procedure).
If you start the procedure you will receive a V-number. A V-number is a unique number, which is used for identification by the IND and cooperating organisations. The number is listed in the correspondence and is also printed on the backside of the residence document itself.
On this page you will find general information on how to apply for an mvv and/or a residence permit:
