Is someone from abroad coming to stay with you, who will need a visa for the Netherlands? Sometimes private accommodation and/or sponsorship is required for the person who is coming to stay with you. Make an appointment to apply for private accommodation and/or sponsorship.
Sponsorship means you are prepared to be a financial guarantor for someone. Your partner will also be financially responsible if you are married or have entered into a registered partnership.
You are an accommodation provider if you make your house available for someone to stay, for example for a family visit.
The civil servant will check whether your signature is authentic during your appointment. Please visit the National Government’s website (Dutch only) for more information.
