New rule purchase of gift cards from 1 October onwards

1 September 2020

Do you want to order gift cards? From 1 October 2020 onwards, gift cards can only be requested in the form of VVV cards via the Service Portal. Do you buy or order other gift cards after 1 October (for example bol.com coupons, VVV cards, book coupons, dinner coupons)? Then the costs incurred will be for your own account.

What is no longer possible from 1 October onwards?

From 1 October 2020 onwards it is no longer possible to:

  • claim costs for gift cards you purchased personally. 
  • request an advance payment for the purchase of gift cards. 
  • order gift cards on account (bol.com, De Slegte, VVV-Nederland, De Kler etc.).


Leiden University has taken this measure because of the application of tax regulations.

Request VVV-cards

You can request VVV cards via the Service Portal. You do this under the heading Central Cash department, via the tile My payment requests. Do you need more information? The Manual for cash payment requests application tells you exactly how you can submit a request.

Directly to the Service Portal
