My integration period ended. Why is it not extended?

The duration of the integration plan is determined individually. The maximum duration for an integration period is three years starting from the signature of the first integration plan.

Also note that you are eligible for an integration plan if:

  • you are unemployed and have registered with the TE Office as a jobseeker.
  • according to the Act on the Promotion of Immigrant Integration, the integration plan must be made no later than three years after you receive your first residence permit or residence card, or after your right of residence is registered.
  • the first integration plan is prepared for up to 12 months.
