What are your MVV experiences?

Hi Cynic....

You are right. My case falls under highly skilled migrant.

Salary is in line as per the salary bucket and has been taken care by my future employer.

With that said, the question of maintaining x amount as funds does not arise?

Hi again,

Not as part of your immigration process.  I'm not aware of any Dutch immigration process that requires an amount of cash to be available at the bank at all times; there is a minimum wage value set for some family type visas, but they're generally set at Dutch minimum wage, which is well below the thresholds for skilled migrants and is not a feature of your permit.

Hope this helps.

Hey,

I read somewhere on this forum that sponsored applications are prioritized.

May I please ask: what are sponsered applications ? and why are they prioritized?

Thanks.

Mainly "skilled-migrants"; they don't have to do the Dutch language exam and their work visa is sponsored by their new employer.

Hi
I am going to pursue masters in The Netherlands and university is arranging my MVV visa and dutch resident permit for me. But I want to bring my spouse and kid along with me and thus I have to apply  their MVV visas separately. My question is once I got my MVV visa approved from IND and on that basis can I apply visa for my family or shall I first obtain Dutch residence?

Hi

People who got positive MVV , please  guide whether appendix for "Medical Information Disclosure Consent Form" and "Proof of Medical Situation of Foreign National" are required. If required, then can I get it filled with my doctors from my country of origin ??

Hello,

I am currently in the same situation but slightly different as I am currently in the Netherlands as a student.

My spouse and I are non-EU citizens.  I arrived the Netherlands and I started the application process for my spouse and our daughters.

When I started, my residency card wasn't in my possession but I had a v-number. I included this in the space provided on the application forms and inscribed it on all supporting documents.
The timeline for the application is 90 days.

Please refer to www.ind.nl for further information regarding supporting documents as a copy of marriage certificate and birth certificate of a child must be legalized. Depending on your nationality, there is an appropriate authority for this.

As the sponsor of their application,  you need to proof of substained income for a year.

All the best.

Can you share the list of documents /appendices that you have included with application.

Hi Expat Forum Members

I am going to be a pursue master at University in The Netherlands. My University is arranging my MVV visa and Dutch Resident permit for me. But they will not do the same for my spouse and kid. I have to apply independently for them as a sponsor.

I have gone through all the discussions on an expat forum and got answers to many of my doubts, but still there are few that I want to get clear as a “student-sponsor” before I begin the application for my family.

1.    As per conversation with the university, I will get my MVV approved from IND by mid of June 2019. So based on my approved MMV letter, can I begin the application for my family?

2.    Since the masters programme will begin from 15 -August -2019 onwards and thus I will have two months to travel to the Netherlands from the day I pick MVV sticker from the embassy. In this two month period while in my country of origin, I (sponsor) will be applying application for my family. My question is as I have not yet traveled to the Netherlands what do I fill in my home address that address of my country of origin or address in the Netherlands?

3.    In the forum, I read somewhere that once the application sends via. post to the IND, the sponsor will receive the notification by post mail. My question is, if I (sponsor) still in my country of origin and have not yet traveled to the Netherlands thus will have no address in the Netherlands, then how IND is going to notify me.

4.    What to mention under where you keep the records of foreign National in Appendix of Declaration by Sponsor (Family and relatives)?

5.    While filling MVV application, I come across two Appendix and are
5.1    Medical Information disclosure consent form.
5.2    Proof of Medical Situation of Foreign National

My first query, if my family does not have any medical history, then can I leave above two appendices from the application?

Secondly, If these are still required,   what should I have to mention under Practitioner, since in India Doctors are not registered under The individual Healthcare professions act as mentioned in the form but in India doctors are registered under Indian Medical Council Act?

As many of you had gone or going through this phase and thus know how it feels the feeling of leaving behind your family because of minor mistakes or incomplete information with the documents.
I hope members of this forum will help me on this matter.

Thanks

Hello everyone! This is my whole MVV experience!

> My Sponsor (Employer) applied for my MVV on March 18, 2019
> Got a response from IND to get my birth certificate and marriage certificate apostilled on March 29th
> Uploaded the apostilled documents on April 14th
> Got positive response from IND on May 9, 2019  :)

Next thing is to take an appointment at the consulate to submit our passports for getting the MVV sticker.

My employer called me to give the good news. I will receive the details on what next needs to be done next by this weekend.

Patience is the key as the response time can vary depending upon cases.

Wishing best of luck to everyone for a positive response from IND

Hello,

Permit me to share my experience :
upon approval of the mvv Visa processed by my university, I paid for accomodation.

Flew into the Netherlands and my passport was stamped at passport control.

I made a copy of my data page and arrival stamp with my v-number inscribed in all supporting documents then sent  via post to IND. Please bear in mind, on these forms,i provided my address at the Netherlands as against my home country's address.

With the signed contract for rented accommodation space, I proceeded to the municipality to register myself to the said address... 2 weeks later, my BSN came in the post.

My residency card eventually was given to me, but I knew that the sticker and arrival stamp can be used for the same purpose as the card.

As regards the two medical documents(Medical Information disclosure consent form and Proof of Medical Situation of Foreign National) I was told my family didn't need to include it in their application.

If still in doubt, you can send IND a mail using the using the email tab under contact.

All the best

For wife and child how much financial income you had shown?
Secondly, which bank statement who had included in the family application that is from bank in your country of origin or from bank in Netherlands.

As the sponsor, I was required to have proof of €17,580.84 for an anticipated year. Since I am a student, I provided my Dutch statement of account that had more than the said amount even if there was a deduction of what could be assumed to be a tuition fee...
At the initial stage, I provided a bank statement in my name from my home country. It was accepted but when converted to the Euro, it was not sufficient thus the request for another.
As the sponsor, it is required that the statement of account must be in your name and not in the name of your spouse.
All the best.

Hi Guys, I just wanted to let you know that my MVV visa was approved. It only took 36 days and it was Zwolle Team 4 who handled our application. Good luck to everyone here!

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

From the IND website (link);

Postbus 5 is for visas related to ".... paid work, self-employment, internship or work experience, seasonal work, highly skilled migrant or study"

Postbus 16 is for all other visa applications.

Hope this helps.

My boyfriend and I submitted our application online last May 26, I hope we don't wait too long for the decision :)

Hello Raman990,

My family's application was sent to postbus16, 95600AA Ter Apel

Hi!

Any South Africans that applied for an MVV in South Africa? How long did it take? (I'm aware of the 90day max period) and did you encounter any issues?
We have an appointment at the embassy in Pretoria on Tuesday 11 June

Thanks in advance!

That was fast . How have you made it so fast🤷‍♂️

Hi Friends,

My Employer had applied for ICT (intra corporate transfer) visa on May 17th and my dependents applications also along with me.

I am still waiting for the approval IND. Hope to hear soon from them :)

Regards,
Kishore.

Hi

I did nu Ecam in September 2017 in Pretoria, MVV application in November and got my visa issued 1st week in Feb 2018. It took almost 90 days

my bf and i received the confirmation letter last june 5. i would just like to ask how long does it take before we get the payment confirmation?

I received yes from IND for me and also my dependents.

Regards,
Kishore.

for those who already got the decision from the IND, may I know what time do they usually email out the decision?:) is there like a specific time?

Hello everyone, I would like to ask a question. Does anyone in this forum apply MVV of change purpose of stay? if yes, would you please share your experience(s)? I am eager to know your experience(s)! Many thanks. :)

There is no specific time unfortunately because what I know that it depends on your papers and how busy IND is. It can be fast, and also it can take some time. Max. 90 days and min. 2 weeks.

Applied on April 29th, and still waiting.. we aren't the lucky ones who got it after 2 weeks.. 
The waiting time, and the distance from the person we love is extremely agonizing...

Love, G

Hi,

Generally employment related visas are processed quickly compared to other types.

And its suggested to apply for dependents also along with main applicant together since timelines differ if applications are submitted separately.

Hi Deb,

What type of Visa did you apply for namely spousal, work visa or study etc?

Did you apply at the Dutch Embassy or online?

Family Visa. My partner is Dutch and he applied in the Netherlands with the IND.  The embassy in PTA contacted me to write the A1 exam and then to complete biometrics for MVV and finally to insert MVV in my passport- all the info was done by him in the Netherlands and it was a lot of paperwork but quite straightforward

Thanks for the reply. We did the MVV application online on 15 June. We had all the required documents in order and made the payment the same day. I just hope we are one of the lucky ones that get an approval quickly as I have seen that many applicants wait the days and the others only 3 weeks.
I am also a Dutch citizen and my wife South African. I currently work in SA but I am starting a new job in the Netherlands on 1 August and would really like my wife to join me when I fly to Schipol end of July...
Anyways, thanks again!

Is it possible to get the mvv sticker in a country different than the residency country? my girlfriend is on a trip to Germany but she's argentinian and the MVV is ready for pickup. can she go to the dutch embassy in Germany?

Unfortunately not. She must pick the mvv in the country mentioned in the application. In the same one she did the Exam.

Hey guys,
Me and my partner applied for the MVV on April 3rd and we're still waiting. 12 days left till the deadline which is july 2nd. It's getting very frustrating and I can't help but think of the worst case scenarios.
Did anybody get a negative decision before ? and what could be the reasons for a rejection ?
Do they usually let us wait intil last minute ? it's insanely frustrating.
Goodluck to everyone.

Your post just made me feel even worse. I understand the frustration 100% I think we all do. Some people get it in 2 weeks, or even in just 10 days.. and some of us have to wait months..  I also applied April 29th.. and the wait is horrible.  Good luck to all of us ♡

I'm sorry I made you feel worse. really.
I've been counting the days litterly and trying to stay as optimistic as possible but the wait is just so frustrating and so hard. I hope the decision will be joyful eventually. I'll let you know if I hear something these days.
