Do I need to report to the Aliens Police upon arrival?

If you have non-EU/EEA nationality and will study at Leiden University for more than 90 days, the Admissions Office will take care of your visa and/or residence permit request. Upon arrival you need not report to the local Aliens Police.

If you have non-EU/EEA nationality and will study in Leiden for less than 90 days, you do not require a visa and/or residence permit. You also do not have to report to the local Aliens Police after arrival.

Note: In the past, all non-EU nationals staying for less than 90 days had to report to the local Aliens Police. However since a change in legislation in January 2014 this is no longer the case.
