MVV Visa Requirements

As of 15 March 2006, almost all aliens seeking to settle in the Netherlands who need an authorisation for temporary stay (MVV) to enter the country will have to take an integration test before applying for a MVV visa.
What is the civic integration examination?

It is a test that an applicant must take at the Dutch embassy or consulate in his/her country of residence before applying for a MVV visa. People applying for an MVV must first prove that they have passed the examination. You need an MVV to apply for a residence permit - which is necessary for a stay of over three months in the Netherlands. The civic integration examination is a test given in the Dutch language.
Candidates will be tested on their knowledge of Dutch society and their command of the Dutch language. Anyone who prepares properly should be able to pass the examination.
