An aircraft technician must have an EASA Part 66 AML qualification. By means of a licence transfer, aircraft maintenance technicians can transfer a Part 66 AML from the Netherlands to another EASA member state or from another EASA member state to the Netherlands. Kiwa Register has been designated by the Dutch government as the competent authority to take care of such a licence transfer for you.
A licence transfer is possible between countries that are members of the EASA. An overview of these countries can be found on the EASA website. Additional application requirements can be found via the application help below.
Once your application for a license transfer from the Netherlands to another EASA member state is complete and paid, it will take approximately 25 business days to process your application.
When you have applied for a licence transfer application from an EASA member state to the Netherlands, it can take an average of 3 months to process. This is because we depend on the relevant Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) that has to transfer your file.
The rate for this service is determined by the Dutch government in the Regeling tarieven luchtvaart (Dutch). A licence transfer for aircraft maintenance technicians from the Netherlands to a foreign country and from a foreign country to the Netherlands in both cases costs € 188.76 (incl. VAT).
After your application has been received by Kiwa Register, you will receive a payment request. This must be paid no later than four weeks after the date. The invoice is sent with the decision and Part-66 AML if the license is replaced and issued by another Member State. If your employer pays the costs for the application, you can indicate this during the application. If you cancel the application or if your application is rejected, there will be no refund of the costs.
