Entry visa and residence permit
- An entry visa (MVV in Dutch) is a sticker in your passport issued by the Dutch Embassy or Consulate in your home country (or the country in which you legally reside) which you may need to enter the Netherlands.
- A residence permit is a card that shows that you legally reside in the Netherlands.
