We would like to offer our students the opportunity to meet fellow students and staff in an informal way, even before arrival. This is why we suggest joining Wittenborg on Facebook.

Login or create a Facebook account: www.facebook.com. Search 'Wittenborg Students & Staff' on the Facebook website or app. Click 'Join us'.

Question:

Family Visa: How can I apply for a family visa?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 5 October 2021, 3:57 PM)
Answer:

The students with a valid Dutch Residence Permit (RP) can bring their spouse/family along with them; but unfortunately, the university does not provide assistance in this procedure. Also,  the student accommodation service is uniquely applicable for the student fully registered at the university.

Additionally, once the student visa is issued, the student has to request a dependent visa for his/her family member(s). If the student wants to bring their family along,  it is possible to request a dependent visa from the Netherlands.

For more information, please visit this site: https://ind.nl/en/family/Pages/Spouse-or-partner.aspx or contact the IND (Immigratie en Naturalisatiedienst) directly for further information.

Answer:

Yes, in general everything is available in the markets. There are plenty of supermarkets you can choose from, though sometimes you may have to go to a specialised shop to buy a specific item, e.g. Asian food. Rice is a common product in the supermarkets. Black Bean sauce can be found in Asian shops.
