Are you receiving visitors from abroad? Sometimes people need a visa to visit the Netherlands. You must show proof of their sponsorship and/or (private) accommodation by filling in a form. This form can be obtained at the Immigration and Naturalisation Service. In it you will describe why you have invited your guest. After that, you have to make an appointment with us to legalize the signature. This means that we will check if your signature and the one on the form are the same.

With this, your guest can show that you will help them. For example with the payment of the costs in The Netherlands, visiting a doctor and with the return to the country of origin.

We are not responsible for what you fill in on the form.

Costs

A letter of guarantee costs € 12,70.
