New residence card scheme
As of May 20, 2012, everyone who is collecting their residence permit will no longer get a sticker in their passport. Instead they will get a credit card sized card. The card contains the following information: name, date and place of birth, citizenship, gender, type of permit, period of validity, when and where the card was issued, comments, photo and signature. There will also be a chip in the card with biometric information in the form of a photo and the fingerprints of the cardholder. This information will only be stored in the card itself.
