We will start your immigration procedure when:
You will receive a confirmation e-mail after we have sent your application to the IND (Immigration and Naturalisation Service).
It can take some time before we receive a decision from the IND. As soon as the IND has agreed to change the purpose of your residence purpose to ‘study’, we will let you know by e-mail.
The IND will check if they can use your old biometric data to make your new residence permit document for ‘study’. We will let you know if you need to have your biometric data taken again, when your card is ready and when to pick it up.
