Apply for an exemption from your integration obligation



Do you have a serious physical or mental problem or are there special personal circumstances? Did you not pass (parts of) the exam? Then you can apply for a (partial) exemption ​for the basic integration exam abroad or the integration exam. If you receive an exemption, you do not have to take the exam.

You can be granted an exemption on medical grounds if you have serious physical or mental problems or if you are blind or deaf, which means you cannot take the exam.


You can also receive an exemption on the basis of special personal circumstances if there are dire or special personal circumstances. If you have failed the exam several times, you may also qualify for an exemption.
