The Dutch squad received their second wildcard invitation to the Tour de France in 2012 and had a stellar Vuelta a Espana with German sprinter John Degenkolb winning five stages.
They also have another German speedster Marcel Kittel in their ranks, who has notched up 13 wins this season.
All of this year's WorldTour teams have been included on the list except Lotto Belisol who cited an admin error for their omission.
The application process is not completed until November 1 and the Belgian team expect the paperwork to be completed next week.
AG2R, Euskaltel-Euskadi, Garmin-Sharp, Rabobank and Saxo Bank-Tinkoff are seeking a license renewal.
The UCI will now evaluate the teams' budget and riders plus receive the deposit of a bank guarantee to form a ranking with the top 15 teams automatically getting a license and up to three more handed out if they have passed the evaluation process.
A further 15 squads have applied for Professional Continental licenses including South African newcomers MTN – Qhubeka.
