Application deadlines

  • Deadlines for European and Dutch nationalities

    These deadlines apply if you have a nationality of one of the European Economic Area (EEA) countries or if you have Dutch nationality.

    If you have a residence permit for the Netherlands or another European country, it does not mean you have the nationality of the specific country. The deadline is depending on your current nationality. For example: if you have a Mexican nationality and hold a Dutch residence permit, your nationality is Mexican (not Dutch), and you should check the non-EEA application deadlines.

Note, that your current nationality is leading, even if you have a Dutch or European residence permit.
