Residence permits for Azerbaijani citizens

There are several aspects to take into consideration if you want to relocate from Azerbaijan to the Netherlands. As a member of the EU and Schengen Area, the Dutch immigration legislation prescribes that all Azerbaijani citizens who want to enter the Netherlands must obtain a provisional residence permit (MVV). The application for MVV on behalf of Azerbaijani citizens can be submitted with the Netherlands embassy in Baku. 

There are several steps to take in order to apply for a provisional residence permit for the Netherlands (MVV):

• Take the civic integration and examination abroad – this usually takes 8 weeks and if you pass this examination you must apply for MVV within a year;
• Find a sponsor in the Netherlands to submit your application – if your application for MVV is successful, he or she will receive a notification and collect your MVV sticker at the embassy;
• Submit an application in person – make an appointment to visit a Dutch embassy; they will check the application and send it to the IND service in the Netherlands;
• Collect your MVV sticker from the embassy – the officials at the Dutch embassy will place the sticker in your passport.

After entering the Netherlands, Azerbaijani citizens who want to continue living in this country long-term must apply for a Dutch residence permit. The residence permit is issued by the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Sevice (IND) and must be collected in the Netherlands.
