A scan of the personal details page of your valid passport
Please note that if you are not from the EU, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Korea or Japan, you will also be requested for a scan of your entire passport (even the empty pages).
One passport photograph according to Dutch standards*
The Netherlands has very strict rules about the format and requirements for passport photos. For the exact requirements see the link below.
For more information on the visa procedure, please refer to the UvA visa information.
Proof that you have health and liability insurance
Under Dutch law, health insurance is mandatory. To comply with this regulation, please upload a copy of your insurance policy or card that covers the duration of your stay in the Netherlands.
If you do not have insurance, the UvA recommends AON. For more information please refer to the link below. If an address is requested in the Netherlands, and you do not yet have an address, please use the address of UvA Student Services:
1012 ZA Amsterdam
