What are your MVV experiences?

Hello.
Based from my understanding, you just need to have the form filled up by your doctor and send it together with your application for mvv. :)

Thank you so much! :) i really appreciate it

Hi all, I have arrived in the Netherlands on the 8th of November with an MVV. I know there are a few more steps that I need to follow in the NL in order to obtain the residence card. Can someone clearly outline the sequence of the next steps that need to be followed after the arrival to the NL, i.e, registering at the municipality (5 days vs 5 working days; or is it the first thing that one needs to do after arriving to the NL); any interaction with the IND (does one need to let the IND know about his/her arrival to the NL, if yes how; collecting the residence cards, etc).
I would be grateful if you could explain the details of it with me. Many thanks

Message sent. :)

Finally! I got a positive respond from IND of my second application it took only  around 3-4 weeks for the second application to be answered :)

I am so glad.. thank you for  this post that I can sharing and we are all sharing of our experiences.I wish a really best of luck of others that are still waiting or  applying.

HI Prav,

Thank you for your reply and the links which is very helpful. I am planning on taking my exam this coming January or early February. Since there is no dutch embassy in the Maldives I have to fly to Srilanka to do the exam. Bummer!

Im studying everyday with my partner. He is a busy man working but still he gives all the time he have to practice with me. :) :) How long did it take for you to get ready for the exam? I started learning end of October and now I am doing pretty good. I am very confident that i can pass the exam. Fingers crossed! :) Goodluck with everything

Thank you for your help!

Cheers!

Happy for those who has made it finally and good luck for the rest of us  :D

Congratulations to everyone who has already received a positive answer!

I am from Mexico and I am also in the waiting period for the MVV.
My husband submitted the papers on September 6 and still we haven’t received an answer.....

Reading all of your experiences has help me a lot and like you said is matter of time a lotsssss of patience.  I feel that here we find other people who can understand our frustration and feelings.

Btw is there by any chance someone who also submitted in September and they already got an answer?

Groetjes!

Thank you :)

Hello :) Welcome to the forum!
Please feel free to ask questions if you have any, and all of us here will try our best to answer.
Good luck <3

Hi

All the best to everyone who is waiting like us.

We submitted on 25th of september and no answer😕

MVV for my family is rejected as I shown bank statement of my spouse. IND objected that financial requirement should be met by me (sponser). Now shall I appeal against the decision? after transferring the required amount to my own account? suggestion please?

Hi.

When I did an internship in Holland my MVV was approved in 2 to 3 weeks. I was surprised at how fast it was.

Now I am in another situation. My boyfriend and I want to apply for my residence permit as unmarried partners. He doesn't meet the minimum income requirement, studying and working half time but he has savings.

We have called the IND but they haven't given is a clear answer regarding this, some of them were not even aware of this rule on the IND website:

Until 1 January 2018 applies: The income from your own funds is sufficient when 4% of these funds, converted per month, at least equals the income requirement.

QUESTION: We want to know if that means that 4% of his savings should equal one month of salary. Does anyone have experience with this?

Because after January 1st, the law changes:
From 1 January 2018 applies: The income from your own funds is sufficient when the benefit from the base of savings and investments at least equals the income requirement.

Feedback would be very appreciated.

Hi!

My bf and I want to apply for a partner permit for me. We have been in a relationship for 5 years but currently we are not living together. I am in Mexico.

I was wondering if as a non EU citizen I could apply for a residence permit change within the Netherlands, say I go to there for work reasons and then decide to apply for a change of purpose. Could this process be done while I am legally residing in Holland and also, could I take the civic integration exam there or would I have to return to my country first?

Anyone has any knowledge or experience?

Thanks.

Hi everyone!

How long did it take for IND to send acknowldegement receipt after you submitted your application for mvv?  We submitted mine 2 mos ago thru my husband’s relocation agency in amsterdam but still no acknowldegement or anything at all. We were told they can follow up after 3 mos only. Based on your experiences does it really take that long for IND just to send acknowledgement receipt?


Thanks!
Malaya

Hello Malaya,

We received our acknowledgement receipt after about a week, it also came with a letter for the payment for the whole process. We paid immediately and they sent another letter of the receipt of payment the next day.
