Foreigners from most non-EU/EEA-countries
need a MVV if they want to come to Holland. With a MVV, foreigners can
travel to the Netherlands and stay here for 3 months. After 3 months,
the MVV is not valid anymore. If you want to stay in the Netherlands or
want to work here, you have to apply for a Residence permit. An MVV can be obtained at a consular representative or Netherlands diplomatic in your country of residence.Inhabitants of non-EU/EEA-countries who do not need a MVV are:
Australia, Canada, Northern Ireland, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, United States of America and Vatican City.
A Machtiging Voorlopig Verblijf or MVV is Dutch for an Authorisation for Temporary Stay.
