The Immigration and Naturalisation service

The Immigration and Naturalisation service [IND] is a part of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice. The employees of the IND conduct interviews with you about your identity, your nationality, the travel route that you took and the reason for leaving your country of birth. They will research your personal story and the situation in your country of origin. Then they will decide whether you may stay in the Netherlands (temporarily), or whether you must return to your own country.
