Registration at Municipality: When should I register at the municipality?
After receiving a residence permit, foreign students can register in their municipality. All students must be registered at their local City Hall. Just call your local City Hall for an appointment.
The Front Desk can make an appointment with the Gemeente (City Hall) for registration of the newly arrived students from abroad in Apeldoorn. For the appointment, students should bring the following documents:
Citizen Service Number (BSN)
“Burgerservicenummer” (BSN) is a unique personal number that enables reliable and efficient data exchange between citizens and government. In the Netherlands, all residents must have their own BSN if they wish to engage in either part-time or full-time work or studies, and for administrative issues, such as opening a bank account.

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

Residence Permit: I am from the UK. Am I exempt from applying for a residence permit in the Netherlands post Brexit?
No. As you will know, the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. Because your right of residence has changed as a result of Brexit, you have to arrange your residence after Brexit.
The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) has come up with
a Withdrawal Agreement with the UK. This agreement consists of a transition period from 1 February, 2020, up to and including 31 December, 2020, during which UK nationals who are already here in the Netherlands
must take action to make sure they can also stay in the Netherlands after 31
December, 2020, by submitting an application for
residence. To make sure you are ready to submit your application online, please
first take care of the next few things first:
If you have not already done so, register yourself in person in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen or BRP) at your town hall. The IND is linked to the BRP. If you register in the BRP, the IND can get in touch with you.
It is very important that your personal details in the Personal Records Database (BRP) are correct, as based on these details the IND will send invitation letters. In this letter, the IND will invite you to submit an application for residence after 31 December, 2020. If your application is approved you will receive a (new) residence document, which you will need to continue to live, work and study in the Netherlands. The application costs €58 for adults and €31 for children under 18.

Residence Permit: I have arrived in the Netherlands, but I cannot collect my residence permit, as IND has limited their office hours. What can I do?
If your residence permit is ready to be collected at the IND office, Wittenborg will have informed you of the collection of your residence permit by email.
The current IND regulations state that you must pick up your residence permit within 3 months as stated on your MVV sticker. However, if you are unable to do so, as the IND states that the residence permits cannot be picked up at the IND office until 6th of April, please inform us (email email@example.com) if you cannot meet the 3-months deadline. Wittenborg will then request IND for an extension of these 3 months, so that you can collect your residence permit later at the IND office.
