Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND)

The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (Immigratie en Naturalisatiedienst or IND) is a branch of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice which implements the immigration policy of the Netherlands.

For anyone wishing to gain admittance to the Netherlands, the IND is the organisation with which your application will be processed.

Whether you are an international looking to study in the Netherlands, an asylum seeker, or you simply want to move to the Netherlands to start a new life, then the IND will be your first point of contact.

IND Responsibilities and Duties

The work of the IND is mostly taken up with applications for residency permits and visas for people wishing to stay a short time in the Netherlands.

If you have been living in the Netherlands for some time and would like to become a naturalised Dutch citizen, the IND can help you with that.

The IND also helps people who feel unsafe in their home country to seek asylum in the Netherlands.
