If I Have a Dutch Residence Permission or Passport, What Happens When I Return With IOM Assistance?

Dutch residence permit holders must return their residence document to the closest Immigration and Naturalization Service counter before their departure from the Netherlands. You will retain your right of residence until your actual departure, so that you can still can change your mind about leaving the Netherlands without any consequences. After your departure took place, your right of residence will be revoked.
