Entry Visa

Nationals from the European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Organisation (EFTA) countries and nationals from the USA., Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan and South Korea do not require a visa to enter the Netherlands. If you have a different nationality and you want to stay more than three months, you need a special visa called an ‘MVV’. TU Delft helps students with their visa application with the help of a fast-track student procedure. When you are admitted to TU Delft, the International Office will inform you about the visa procedure.

All students (EU and non-EU) staying longer than four months in the country need to register as a resident at the local municipality. The International Office will make an application on your behalf on the day of your registration.

Health Insurance & Immunizations

  • In principle everyone who lives in the Netherlands must have health insurance. There are differences in the way these rules apply depending on the person’s country of origin (EU or non-EU).
  • For EU students, if your health insurance in your home country in the EU also covers you abroad, you can apply for a European Health Insurance Card with your insurance company before your trip to the Netherlands. For students who are not from EU countries, all students from non-EU countries are obliged to take out a Dutch student health insurance. Health insurance in the Netherlands for international students is typically 40 euros per month.
  • No specific immunizations are required, however all non-European students (except nationals from the US, Canada, Japan, Australia and Surinam) need to undergo a tuberculosis test to obtain or extend their residence permit for the Netherlands.
