Hi Guys,
I'm new to this forum and glad that I found this forum. I was almost confused out of my mind finding out how to move to Holland.

I'm dating a Dutch man and after some time dating, we are planning to live in or get married but we weren't too sure on what needed to be done. After reading through the forum and researching, I understand that I have to do the inburgering. Even so, I'm still a little confused on what needed to be done.

ON TAKING THE INBURGERING
1) Do I take inburgering in my home country or do I have to take it in the Netherlands?
2) What is the first step needed to apply to take the inburgering exam - ( i understand that I need to purchase an exam kit) Above all this, does my partner need to send an invitation first before all this?
3) Reading through the forum, I am a little confused with "inburgering" and "staatsexamen". What are the difference? I'm a degree holder with 7 years of working experience, will it matter on the type of exams that I have to take based on my education level and working experience?
4) What are the process when taking the inburgering? I know that if i pass the exam, i will get a sticker to allow me to live in Holland for more than 3 months. What happen in between passing the exam and getting a sticker/stamp?

ON GETTING MARRIED
1) Do i have to take the inburgering first, before registering for marriage?
2) If we are married first in the Netherlands, do I still need to take inburgering? And if yes, should I take it in my home country or in the Netherlands
3) Will my partner need to have a certain income level to send an invitation in both cases (getting married and not getting married)?

I do hope that someone can help me out with this and point me to a clearer direction. Thank you so so so so much..

Hi Flolynn,

Did you manage to find the info you need? I am rather familiar with the MVV and inburgering. If you like, you can send me a PM and we can discuss further..
