Regarding Permanent residence application

Hi everyone ! I have a quick question regarding application for PR. I will be completing 5 years in Amsterdam by end of this year and I am planning to apply for a national/european permanent residence permit. The eligibility for PR requires you to have an uninterrupted residence permit for 5 years but I have a gap of 2 days between end date of my first residence permit and the start date for renewed one. This was due to the delay in sending the application from the employer. However, as I realised there can be delay, for this period I got stamped a verblijfsaantekeningen (residence endorsement sticker) from IND. Also during this period I was registered at Gemeente. Now, will these 2 days be counted as a gap in my residence and forbid me to obtain PR ?
Thanks for helping out !

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

It would seem harsh to me.  However, this is really a question you need to ask of the IND.  The regulations don't make any provision for real-life events, so it must be at the discretion of the regulator who may ask you or your employer for evidence to support your claim.

The IND publish their contact details on their website; this link will take you there.  They also have a Twitter feed where you can ask questions; this link will take you there.

Hope this helps.

Hi Bo and welcome back.

To be brutally honest, unless you have a very unique skill-set that is in very short supply, you have very little chance of that happening.

Probably not what you want to hear, but I do wish you the best of luck in your journey. :)

Hope this helps.
