Hard copy documents

For most of the documents, we can use a digital version for the residence permit application. For some of the Financial Means documents, however, we must have the original hardcopies. After reviewing your digital OSIRIS application, we will therefore ask you to send the necessary originals documents to us by post as soon as possible.

Which documents you need to send, depends on how you proved you have sufficient financial means in your OSIRIS digital application.

  • If you have your own financial means, you must send: the original Bank Declaration (if you submit a bank statement, a digital copy will suffice)         
  • If you have a sponsor, you must send: the original Financial statement sponsor form and if applicable the original Bank Declaration (if you submit a bank statement, a digital copy will suffice)  

Please note, if you combine funds, you will have to send all the applicable original documents listed above.

The original documents should be received by us before the deadline.

Please note that we may require some of your other original documents as well. If this is the case, we will inform you by email.
