Residence permit and visa
When you arrive in the Netherlands you must register as a resident at your local city office. Prospective visitors from certain countries also need to apply for a residence permit. For students it is worth checking with your university’s international office what rules apply and whether they can arrange required documents on your behalf through a fast-track procedure.
