Question:

Redirecting Post: How can I get my post redirected to my new residence overseas?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 23 June 2020, 5:15 PM)
Answer:

It can always be a hassle if your post gets misplaced after you have moved abroad. It may also be difficult for your friends or relatives to contact you if you have moved without letting them know in advance. There is a smart way to ensure any lost or misplaced posts by applying for this service on the Postnl website. This will enable all posts to your old address to be automatically redirected to the new address abroad. This service from Postnl is free of charge. 

To avoid confusion because the website is mainly in Dutch, there is the option of visiting a Postnl office in your area and activating this service.

You can apply for this service online by visiting their Postnl website at: https://www.postnl.nl/ontvangen/post-doorsturen/doorzendservice/.

Question:

Residence Permit (RP): What shall I do if my RP is going to expire soon? How do I extend my RP?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 12 May 2021, 3:51 PM)
Answer:

In principle, you will be notified by Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) when your residence permit will expire soon (within three months). It is fully your own responsibility to notify Registrar Office and submit required information and documents completely to extend your residence permit on time to avoid residency gap in your residency in the Netherlands. 

Kindly refer the webform and upload all necessary documents to request for an RP extension: https://form.wittenborg.eu/visa-application-RP-extension.htm. Please submit the form at least 6 weeks prior to your RP expiration date. Then the Registrar Office could have sufficient time to review your files, prepare your RP extension application and send to IND.

Additionally, please note that we cannot submit an application for a residence permit extension of the validity if the residence permit is still valid for more than three months. The IND will disregard an application for an extension that is submitted earlier than three months before the expiration date of the residence permit

Should you have any question concerning this email, feel free to contact us directly via email: registrar@wittenborg.eu.



Question:

Residence Permit Expired: What should I do if my residence permit has expired but I cannot leave the Netherlands at this moment?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 14 July 2020, 10:04 AM)
Answer:

Submit an extension application at the IND desk where possible. If this is not possible, you can ask for a return decision at the counter. With a return decision, you then have an additional 28 days to leave the country. You can make appointments at the counter in the usual way, but bear in mind the currently limited services at the IND counters.




Question:

Residence Permit Gap: What is the "residence permit gap" and the consequences if I have a gap in the residence permit period?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 9 March 2021, 10:59 AM)
Answer:

A residence gap is an interruption in your continuous stay and may cause problems later on if you want to apply for a Dutch permanent residence. In general, a residence permit gap has affects in the longer term, if you decide to apply for a Dutch permanent residence permit in the future. In order to apply for a permanent residence permit, one of the requirements is that you have legally resided in the Netherlands for an uninterrupted period of five years or more before you make the permanent residence permit application. This means that you require to have had a valid residence permit for the full five years, without interruptions or gaps within this period. You have thus always applied for extension of your residence permit on time. Another requirement is that within these five consecutive years you have not stayed outside the Netherlands for six or more consecutive months, or three years in a row for four or more consecutive months.

The consequence of a residence permit gap is that the period of legal residence in the Netherlands before this gap will not be taken into consideration. This means that you will have to start again building up a five-year uninterrupted period in the Netherlands to obtain permanent residency.

For example: If your first residence permit is issued from 01-09-2009 till 31-08-2013, and if you apply for residence permit extension later than your expiration date (31-08-2013), then residency gap is created, and the IND starts counting from that day onwards -- that day your application form is received by the IND. Even a single day difference is recognised as a residency gap.

Question:

Retake: For Type 2 Exams, can I revise my original assignment and submit it during the retake?

(Last edited: Thursday, 22 October 2020, 12:20 PM)
Answer:

Starting from Block 2 (2020-2021), for retakes: students are NOT allowed to revise their original assingments submitted at the end of the respective teaching block. They must hand in a ‘new’ assignment. This is because the final submission of a Type 2 assignment is supported with a feedback that is provided on the draft (as a compulsory requirement) within the block. The retake submission will be based on the same exam Type 2 instructions provided during the teaching block but using a different topic/case/context/company etc.

There are however, exceptions to this rule:
The pedagogical and didactical requirements necessitate that students of the following modules can submit a revised version of the same assessment in the subsequent retake block. If the students do not pass the module in the retake block, they will be required to attempt the module during the next delivery and submit the module assignment (exam Type 2) as per the module instructions.
