MVV - Authorisation of Temporary Stay

Visa for the Netherlands for more than 90 days (‘MVV’) have to be applied directly at the Kingdom of the Netherlands Embassy in Hanoi or Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City.

If you want to visit the Netherlands for an uninterrupted period longer than 90 days, you must apply for an authorization for temporary stay (MVV). This MVV is a national (D) visa, on which you can travel to the Netherlands and subsequently apply for a residence permit.

If you do not need an MVV and wish to stay in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days, you must still report to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) to register and/or apply for a residence permit on arrival in the Netherlands.

For more detailed information about the MVV procedure, plus the entry conditions for all nationalities for stays both longer and shorter than 90 days, visit the website of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
