LEAVING ThE NEThERLANDS Deregister from the Municipal Personal Records Database (GBA) Deregistering from the Municipal Personal Records Database is necessary. The municipality removes your personal details from the database and informs other government authorities of your departure. www.iamsterdam.com/en/living/official-matters/ deregistration Hand in your residence permit The residence permit card you received remains the property of the Dutch state. Therefore, you need to hand it in on your final departure. If you leave the Netherlands by plane, you can hand in the card at your final customs check. Or you can hand in the card at the IND office in Amsterdam. Please contact International Office also so they can deregister you with the IND. Extending your stay in the Netherlands If you want to extend your stay in the Netherlands you will need to extend your residence permit. Your residence permit is only valid for a certain period of time. Usually this is linked to your employment contract or the courtesy privileges agreement you have signed with VU University Amsterdam. After the expiry date of your residence permit, you have 28 days to leave the Netherlands. If you need to extend your residence permit please make sure you start the application well in advance. You can consult the International Office for advice and help in this regard. 25 Pagina 24
