NB for EU nationals and applicants following the verification against EU law procedure

Due to a policy change at the IND, it is no longer possible for EU nationals and their partners to provide biometrics, collect the residence permit or a residence endorsement sticker at the Rotterdam Expat Centre if they have applied for the verification against EU law procedure.

Please follow the instructions in the letter you received or will receive from the IND to schedule an appointment at an IND desk. Any appointments scheduled by people following this procedure will be cancelled by the employees from the IND.

It is still possible to register at the Rotterdam Expat Centre if you are an EU national or their dependent if the EU national receives the 30% ruling and they have an address in Rotterdam or Schiedam. Please schedule an appointment via the following page:
