Followed a literacy course
You have 3 years to integrate. Did you have to learn to read and write first? And did you follow a literacy course? Then you often get more time.
Letter from DUO
After the literacy course you will usually get a letter from DUO, saying that you get extra time. And how much. You will never get more than 2 extra years for learning how to read and write.
Is it already 8 weeks after your literacy course? And have you still not received a letter from DUO? Then apply for the extra time yourself. Even if your school is not on the Blik op Werk list Link opent externe pagina .
- Complete the form ‘Aanvraag verlenging bij alfabetisering’ (Application for literacy extension).
- Ask the school to complete the proof of enrolment.
- Send the form and the proof of enrolment to DUO.
- DUO decides if you get extra time. We will let you know within 8 weeks.
Did you already get extra time to integrate? You can’t ask for extra time twice for the same period.
