Immigration and the Dutch Immigration Board (IND)
IND is very strict about granting a residence permit, as The Netherlands officially implemented a policy of limitation of (non-EU) immigration. Therefore, an application for a residence permit will be easily rejected if one does not meet all the immigration requirements. Mistakes made in the application can cause fatal failure that are not to be recovered in a later stage. It is recommended to use a lawyer who actually has this expertise of applying for a residence permit.
Our experts in the field of immigration have rich experience in applying for various types of Dutch residence permits, such as living with a partner, family reunification, labor migrants, highly-skilled immigration (Knowledge Migrant), continued residence, study or entrepreneurship.
In addition, we assist clients taking a procedure against IND’s decisions, e.g. withdrawal of residence permits. If there is a need, the appeal will go up to the supreme court. Many important legal cases in the area of immigration in the Netherlands are established by proceedings conducted by the lawyers from our firm.
