Immigration costs

If you are planning to immigrate to the Netherlands you need to take some financial matters into account. Below you can find the different kinds of costs and the payment details.

Different types of costs

There are different types of costs that you will face during the immigration procedure. Below you can find the costs you need to pay in case of your first application, for an extension of your residence permit or for a change of purpose.

The amount you need to transfer to the Erasmus University Rotterdam consists of 3 parts:

  1. Immigration fee of €207 (Israeli students do not pay the immigration fee);

  2. Tuition fee, applicable to your situation;

  3. Living fee (refundable, see bottom of the page) of €950 for every month you will be studying in the Netherlands.** 

    This fee should correspond with the duration of your programme. It has a maximum of 12 months - €11.400 - in case you enrol for a programme with a duration of more than one year.

    ** Although the IND maintains an income standard of €932,87 for students, we have set the standard at €950 to make sure that you meet the minimum required amount in case of banking costs or exchange rates. The amount of €950 is non-negotiable.

In some cases you'll also need to write a Scholarship Letter (click here for an example of the scholarship letter). This can be part of your tuition fee or living fee. The remaining part still needs to be transferred to the university's bank account (but the remaining part of the living fee is refundable).

You can either add up the difference amounts to pay at once.’ : As long as all payments are made before the deadline of your immigration case. And make sure to always mention your student number and full name.


IMPORTANT: please note that all additional fees that the banks may charge for the international bank transfer must be covered by yourself!
