Q.Do Indian student need authorization for Temporary Stay (MVV) ?
A. Since the applicant will be staying for longer than three months, you need an authorization for temporary stay (MVV). The regular application procedure for an MVV may take three to six months, sometimes even longer. The Dutch host institution can apply for an MVV on your behalf using a fast-track procedure. But to do this, the institution must give the authorities a guarantee, which they sign. Institutions will not always agree to do this. But it is worth asking the institution about the fast-track procedure, because it will save both time and trouble.
