The Foreign Citizens Advice Centre has obtained a complete list of requirements needed for renewal and/or first application for any one of the 6 new kinds of new residence permits depending on which of the permits you require;
Short-term residence permit
Family residence permit
Residence permit for students
Long-term residence permit
Humanitarian residence permit
Residence permit issued to victims of human trafficking
We had the list professionally translated and it appears below.
As no two people’s circumstances are the same, we advise that when making an application you go to the Foreigner’s department at the police station, beside the Mayor’s office, and explain your circumstances to them. They will then look down the list of requirements and circle which items they require from you.
Please keep in mind that they may circle all, some or none of the requirements listed, depending on how you present yourself to them. They will then open a file for you on the date of application, from then you have two weeks in which to submit all of your paperwork. If all paperwork is not received before this deadline they may close the file and you may have to apply again.
The Police station is processing applications for the moment until such time as the new Directorate General of Migration Management takes over permanent responsibility for all future applications. Once we are informed as to when they plan to open and where they will be located we will update this page further.
