I was recently admitted at a university in Netherlands. I got admission into the Phd program, so I am considered as the employee of the university with salary and every other employment benefit.
I have sent the university all my academic documents. A few days ago, the university contacted me for my passport for visa preparation. I told the university that I am expected to receive my passport on a certain date but there could be a delay of a few days.
The supposed passport receive date came and the passport office did not give me my passport saying that the passport office have not yet received it and I should come after two days to get it.
On the same day I got an email from the university asking me to send the university my passport as the university want to finish the process as soon as possible.
In the absolute worst case the passport office could take 5 more working days but the passport office usually delivers two or three days after the expected date.
Can I lose my job offer due to this delay? I currently told the university that the passport office has asked me to come after two days but what should I do if the passport office doesn't give me my passport even after two days and further delay giving me my passport by a few more days? The passport office doesn't usually delay giving a passport that long but what should I do if the passport office does create a delay?
