Submitting your application
The notes provide more details and describe what we expect from you, so please refer to them when completing the form.
Be sure to complete the form truthfully and in full, and add all required documentation as an annex to the form.
Quality of your application
We can only assess your application if you submit a fully and correctly completed application form and enclose all documents referred to. If your application falls short of these requirements, we will ask you to supplement it. Our three-month consideration period will not start until the application has been completed. This means that the time we need to consider your application greatly depends on the quality of your application and the enclosed documents.
