Right to recidence
De Immigratie- en Naturalisatiedienst (IND) decides if you can stay in the Netherlands. This is called right to residency, verblijfsrecht in Dutch. More information you can find on their website: https://ind.nl/Paginas/home.aspx
Obligation of integration
After you received a residence permit the organisation called DUO (Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs) decides if you are obligated to integrate. If so, they will send you a letter. More information you can find here: https://www.inburgeren.nl/
If DUO decides that you have this obligation, then the law called Wet Inburgering applies to you. The municipality of Amersfoort is responsible for the implementation of this law.
