Extension procedure

By completing and submitting this form, you will provide the International Office EUR with all the information and documentation required for an application for an extension of your Dutch residence permit. Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) will apply for the extension at the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) on your behalf, but the responsibility for providing us with complete and truthful information in time is yours.

When to apply?

If you currently hold a permit that is about to expire within 10 weeks, we advise you to email us, so we can send you the extension form. Make sure that your enrolment at EUR is fully completed (including payment of the tuition fee) and you paid the extension fee before starting this procedure. The deadline for submitting the form is 2 months before your residence permit expires.  Please be aware that late applications will still be processed, however EUR cannot be held responsible for any gaps in your legal status that you may experience due to late submission of your application.




Please send us the completed extension form to immigration@eur.nl.
Don't forget to complete the checklist mentioned in the extension form.

The International Office EUR checks the information and the documents. If additional information is required, you will be contacted.
3.If the information and documentation is complete, EUR will submit an application for the extension of your permit to the IND. You will receive a confirmation by email when the application has been forwarded to the IND. The IND generally takes two to three months to process applications.


Once the IND informs EUR that your application has been approved, you will receive a notification by email. The IND will proceed with issuing your new residence permit.



When your residence permit is ready to be collected at the IND front office, you will receive another notification. Please note that this can take two to four weeks after your application has been approved.


Please send us the completed extension form to immigration@eur.nl. Don't forget to complete the checklist mentioned in the extension form.
