- MVV (D): for people living in the Netherlands for more than 3 months, including international students. You can use this visa to enter the Netherlands once (single entry visa). After arriving in the Netherlands, you must apply for a resident permit. ATR / MVV takes about 2 months to complete (If there is NFP / Huygens scholarship this procedure will be faster) - usually WUR will apply for MVV for DHS.
