Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will apply for a visa and/or residence permit on your behalf after you have been (conditionally) admitted, and when you have confirmed your participation in the Exchange programme.
The deadlines for completing your visa application are 1 June (1st semester) and 1 December (2nd semester).
Before we can start the visa and/or residence permit procedure, we need to have received the visa fee (€350).
