MVV-TEV Procedure

Does anyone know how long the MVV-family Visa approval takes after the confirmation of acceptance from IND??
I am from India and am applying for my partner's(Indian) visa for the Netherlands. I had applied on 19th June and received a confirmation on 22nd June. Its been 3 weeks now and we are still waiting.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

The IND can take up to 90 days to process any MVV.

Hope this helps.

I know the decision period is 90 days, but does it really take that long?

There is no firm answer to that, can all depend on how busy they are in the office, this time of year üeople take holidays, so can make it worse as less staff in the office.

The MVV process is not a tick box computer screen operation, it involves several Dutch government departments.  We have had instances reported where it took longer than 90 days, but in every respect, the IND came back to that person at the 90-day point and warned them.

My mvv application approved in 3 weeks from den haag team 9.

The approval time is case to case, the longest is 90 days. :)

Thanks guys, finally got mine - took around 4 weeks.

Hi did you receive your approval by post? We applied mvv on june 22 2018 but still waiting....but we applied online

I don't know exactly. My university applied for me and they said that they received news that the MVV is ready. But I didn't get anything by post, ever for my Visa, I got nothing by post.

My husband received an approval by post. He applied online too.

Thanks for your
