Which services will be charged for?

Services which are in addition to those of the IND and the Municipal Personal Records Database will now incur a fee (please note that payment in cash is not possible.) The application fees for the standard permit provision by the IND will remain consistent and the registration for the Municipal Personal Records Database at Amsterdam City Hall will continue to be free of charge. 

To further strengthen Amsterdam's investment climate, new businesses will be excluded from paying fees during their first year of residence in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area or for their first 10 employee applications, whichever occurs first.
