My residence permit has been revoked

A residence permit may be revoked for various reasons, including the following.

  • You obtained a residence permit based on family reunification, but you are now separated
  • You have been dismissed, or your employment contract has not been extended
  • You no longer meet the income requirements for the residence permit
  • You have finished or stopped your studies


If your residence permit has been revoked, you must leave the Netherlands. You can appeal this decision but must do so within 28 days of the date of the decision. If an objection has been submitted, you may in some cases stay in the Netherlands until a ruling has been made.
