Option Visa - process

My husband's Mom is a dutch citizen and he has the option to apply for an Option Visa. Can anyone tell me if they've ever applied for this and how long the process is?

We were living outside Holland when our kids were born.  How we did it for them is that my wife went to the Dutch Embassy with her Trouwboek (your husbands Mum will know what that is), my wife's Dutch passport and the kids birth certificates.  She had our kids births registered in her Trouwboek, they then applied for there own Dutch passports, using her trouwboek as evidence of having a Dutch mum).  We got the passports while we waited.

My advice would be to talk to your nearest Dutch Embassy/Consul for further help.

Hope this helps.

Thank you, I will definitely do that.
