Study and relationship

Post Posted: Tue Dec 06, 2005 7:30 pm

Hello, i have been reading this forum for a while now and i find it really interesting to learn more about this subject.
But i still have some questions i hope some one has an answer:

I decide to move to the netherlands with my girlfriend (Dutch) and do also an MBA studies here in the Hague, so after reading a lot i have 2 option:
1) Is come back with a student visa for 1 year ( that is the time it would take the studies )
2) Start my papers as a partner of her ( non married, neither in a partnership )

So my questions are:

1)If i come back as a student, after i enter the netherlands for a while . I am able to change my studen MVV to a partner MVV ?. So that would mean that my motive to stay in the netherlands have changed ?

2) In case of the MVV for non married partners i heard you need a Birth certificated, also a non- married certificate. Is there extra things they would ask to proof the relationship ?


Thanks in advance for any answer.

Carlos

Hi Carlos,
If you will check the site www.ind.nl, you will find lots of information about registering here, permits, etc. I do believe that you can change your status from a student to a partnership once you are here. On the IND site there will be a list of things you would need to register for a partnership here in HOlland. good luck with your move. Martha

Thanks Martha, really interesting site found a lot of help there but couldnt find what kind of extra proof they would ask in case of applying for a partner Mvv (with out being married or also not in a register partnership), do you now something about that?

As for applying for a partnership, you have to furnish proof that you are unmarried, and that your partner has at least the minimum amount of income to sponsor you. If you are not in a registered partnership, and are coming for work, then you should be able to get a work permit. If you are coming for school, then that would be your best bet to stay for one year and then hopefully you can get a job here or your girlfriend will have a job and can sponsor you to stay.

Hey Carlos, I am in a similar situation than yours. I see this post is old, but if you still read it I will like to get in touch with you. My girlfriend is not Dutch but German, but she will study in the Netherlands and I plan on doing a Masters in Finance.
Tell me how everything is going and if you are able to work now, or plan to get your permits soon.

Well "Hallo" as they say here .... yes i arrived in Holland 2 month ago so i am still waiting for my residence permit , they told me it could take about 6 month so that would be almost untill december. So far things going ok with the paper work and i am also waiting for the letter of invitation from the IND for an interview about the integration course that i will need to eventually do because i am in a Family formation Visa. I will start my MBA studies in october and it would last a year , so i called the IND to see if this integration course (Dutch lenguage and culture) would be a problem with my studies but they said that is possible to delay it for after my studies (but i am curious if they will do so). At the moment i am studying Dutch and enjoy a little the summer.
I hope this information can help you or if you have some questions about it i can tell you my experience so far.
Regards
