About

Students from a non-EU, non-EEA nation, Swiss require a visa to study in Netherlands. Students need a 'provisional residence permit' (machtiging tot voorlopig verblijf, MVV). The host institution will apply at Dutch Immigration Service (IND) on student behalf concerning the application for an MVV. MVV allows entry in the country for a six-month period. Most of the courses at universities last for 1 to 4 years, a mere MVV will not help. Once you enter the country, you need to apply for VVR or a Residence Permit. The VVR is also applied for by the host university. VVR is permitted for study purposes only and is valid for the duration of the programme the student had enrolled in. There is another condition attached with the validity of VVR. It stays valid provided the student scores 50% of credit throughout the course duration.

Work during studies:

Foreign students (non EU/EEA/Swiss) with a valid residence permit are allowed to work either full-time seasonal work in June, July and August, or part-time work of no more than ten hours a week outside the summer period.

The processing time for study visa may take from 6-12 weeks from the application day.
