Like blintzes and pannakoechen, Dutch men and Rusian ladies are finding similarities that lead to love matches on


Russian women are smart and savvy, but also sweet and feminine -- a real turn-on for men from the Netherlands. The two cultures are honest and direct, thifty, resourceful and have triumphed over adversity.


There's also a mutual love of art, history and culture.


If you want to bring a Russian ladylove to the Netherlands for marriage, she will love it's world-recognized educational system, and its openness and tolerance of different cultures. 


Immigration is becoming a stickier issue in Holland, however. The Dutch Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) has restricted immigration in recent years. Newcomers uusally have to pass a language and culture exam. Men bringing foreign wives or partners into the country must also meet a minimum income, about 120 percent of minimum wage, to prove he can support a family. 
The immigration process takes three steps: A Russian bride must first apply for the Provisional Residence Permit (MVV) at a Netherlands embassy or consulate in her own country. This will allow her to enter the Netherlands. She must register with the government within five days of entering the country. After that, she will need to apply for a long-term residence permit through the IND. 


To obtain citizenship, your Russian wife must be:

  • At least 18 years old
  • Lived continuously in the Netherlands for five years
  • Pass the Civic Integration Exam demonstrating competency in the Dutch language
  • Have a clean criminal record
