Applying for a long-stay visa (MVV) for residents of Jordan

If you want to stay in the Netherlands for longer than 90 days, you may need a residence permit. In many cases you will also have to apply for a long-stay visa before you travel to the Netherlands. This visa is also called an authorisation for temporary stay (MVV).

In Jordan, you can apply for this visa at the Netherlands embassy in Amman.

Do I need an MVV and/or a residence permit?

You should check whether you need an MVV and/or a residence permit. This depends on things like your nationality and the purpose of your stay.

Applying for a residence permit and an MVV

You can apply for a residence permit and an MVV in two ways:

  • through a host in the Netherlands (such as an employer, family member or educational institution)
  • in person at a Netherlands embassy or consulate-general.

If you have a host in the Netherlands, in most cases your host will have to submit the application to the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND).

First check whether you need to take the civic integration examination.

Point of attention

Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that some agencies or agents that assist applicants in the application procedure charge applicants additionally for booking an appointment at the embassy.

The embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands would like to draw the attention of all applicants that the embassy does not charge any fees for making an appointment through its appointment system. The embassy strongly recommends that applicants make their own appointment.

For submitting an MVV application, the embassy will only accepts applicants that have a personal appointment which clearly states their name. 

Please inform the embassy in case you are charged for an appointment.
