Does changing my visa type will impact my period of stay in the Netherlands.

Question

I want to know if changing my visa type will impact my period of stay in the Netherlands. I have been living here continuously for the last 2 years and want to apply for permanent residency (PR) after 3 years from now. Will changing the visa type nullify these 2 years and start counting my period of stay from the time I receive my HSM?

I heard about an incident where a dependent faced such an issue so wanted to check if anybody else knows about it or faced something similar.

  1. PR is based on how many years we have registered in NL, not relates to visa type. You can have any visa; they only check continuous stay with registration.
