Mijn DUO: always faster
A long wait is not always necessary. In Mijn DUO you can arrange a lot of things yourself. Even from abroad, using a DigiD or European digital identity.
Once your application or document has been processed, you will find a notice in Mijn DUO. Often, you can see the results of your actions right away.
