The following applies to existing members:
If you pay prior to 5 December, you will receive the JeugdVISpas before 1 January. If you have issued a direct debit authorisation, you will receive the new JeugdVISpas around mid-December.
Sportvisserij Nederland assists many clubs in dealing with their membership records and sends the JeugdVISpasses three weeks after payment. Following payment, temporary proof of membership will be ready for you at Mijnsportvisserij.
A limited number of fishing clubs still issue the JeugdVISpas to their members themselves. Sportvisserij Nederland delivers the JeugdVISpasses to them in late November, and it is up to them to decide when they issue the JeugdVISpasses to their members. Some do this on their regular members’ evenings, others send them by post.
The following applies to new members:
Members who have recently ordered the JeugdVISpas online or in the shop and have received a Voorlopig Bewijs van Lidmaatschap (VBL; temporary proof of membership) for this purpose, can view the status of their order via ‘status aanvraag’ (status of your request).
A VBL is valid for one month and provides immediate permission to go fishing. You will generally receive the final JeugdVISpas within three weeks. Note: if you have ordered the JeugdVISpas online, you will automatically receive a VBL by e-mail. This may have ended up in your spam box.
If you have not received the JeugdVISpas within three weeks, please send an e-mail with your question, name and address details and VBL number to email@example.com.
