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.
Started integration before 1 January 2022
Did you start your integration before 1 January 2022? 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. You should also do this if your school is not listed on zoekinburgerschool.nl Link opent externe pagina .
Did you already get extra time to integrate? You can’t ask for extra time twice for the same period.
- Complete the ‘Aanvraag verlenging inburgeringstermijn bij alfabetisering’ form.
- Ask the school to complete the 'Bewijs van inschrijving' (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.
Started integration on 1 January 2022 or after
Did you start your integration on 1 January 2022 or after? And did you take a literacy course? You will not automatically get a letter from DUO. You have to apply for the extra time. The form will be published in 2022.
