During your first visit to the Stadswinkel we will check whether you meet the requirements and you'll get more information about the procedure:
- If you are considered for Dutch citizenship via option, the municipality determines the outcome of your request
- If you are considered for Dutch citizenship via naturalisation, the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) determines the outcome of your request
- Valid passport which mentions your nationality
- Valid residence permit
- Sometimes you'll need other documents. Discuss this when you call about your appointment
