One-Year Program enrollment


Enrollment for course participants who need visa  

Dutch First advises all participants who require any form of Visa (verblijfsvergunning) to check their Visa possibilities and their recommended application timeline with the Dutch Immigratie- en Naturalisatiedienst (IND) BEFORE applying to Dutch First courses. It is the participants own responsibility to apply for, track, and follow through with their own visa process. Participants should allow themselves several months to apply for and receive an answer regarding their visa. 

Once you have checked your possibilities with the IND, you are ready to begin the application process, please click on the green sign-up button on top of this page. Please fill out the form and send it back to us after you have read our regulations. The regulations have important information about course registration and cancellation policies.
