Visa arrangements

To enter the Netherlands for study or research purposes, you might need a visa and work permit. EU nationals do not need a visa to stay in the Netherlands or a work permit to work in the Netherlands. There are three elements which are important to find out which procedures apply to you:

  • your nationality
  • the length of your stay
  • your purpose of stay

Please check at this link which procedure applies to your situation.
