VISA (to be applied locally)
If you are staying in the Netherlands for more than three months, you need a Student Visa (MVV), which has to be issued before you come to the Netherlands. However, students are not allowed to apply for this visa themselves. This is why the Maastricht University Visa Office will contact you once you have been admitted to a program at UM.
Please be aware that due to a recent change in law, you must acquire at least 50% of your credits for one academic year, otherwise your visa may be revoked.
