Residence permit (IND) - for Non EU/EEA students only

The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) will hand out your residence permit on:

Date:   September 2020  Location: (Aula) Building R5, Rachelsmolen 1, Eindhoven

In the introduction week (August 24th) you will receive a letter from us with the exact date and time to pick up your residence Permit.

Don't forget to bring your passport!

Directly after you have received your residence permit, Fontys will scan your residence permit. It is extremely important that you do not leave the Aula before this scan has been made. Without the scan of your residence permit your enrolment procedure will not be completed.

NOTE: Students who entered the Netherlands without Entry Visa*, first have to visit the front office of the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) in Eindhoven to have their photo, fingerprints and signature taken. Otherwise your residence permit cannot be ordered.

*For example: nationals from Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, South Korea, the USA, Vatican City State.

Photo, fingerprints and signature

In order to be able to make a residence permit for you, the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) needs your fingerprints, photo and signature. Most students have already done this abroad while collecting their visa. In case you haven't, you have to visit the IND as soon as possible after arriving in the Netherlands. Only then you can pick up your residence permit at Fontys together with all other students. You do not have to make an appointment. Don't forget to bring your passport!

You will be informed as soon as your residence permit is available. This can take 2-3 weeks.
