Extended permit application on the basis of family ties

Apply with this application for a residence permit if you have been granted a fixed-term residence permit on the basis of family ties. The same family ties still exist (for example, marriage to the same spouse), and you wish to apply for a new fixed-term residence permit on the basis of these family ties. If your family member is not the same one as before, use the form OLE_PH1, OLE_PH2 or OLE_PH3.

  • Expected processing time

Please note:

If your first residence permit was granted to you on the grounds of family ties and you apply for an extended permit on the same grounds, use the same application form. If your first residence permit was granted on some other grounds but you apply for an extended permit on the basis of family ties, use an application form that suits your situation. The Application Finder will help you find the application form that you should use.
