The move comes after fellow midfielders Jonathan de Guzman and Stijn Schaars were ruled out through injury
De Guzman is struggling with a groin problem and sat out Swansea's Premier League defeat to Southampton on Sunday while PSV Eindhoven's Schaars misses out with a knee injury.
That has led to Louis van Gaal drafting in 23-year-old Fer, whose last senior appearance for Holland came just over a year ago when he was used as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 win over Turkey.
Holland, who have already qualified for the 2014 World Cup, face Hungary in Amsterdam on Friday before completing their campaign with a trip to Turkey the following Tuesday.
Fer, who picked up a knee injury in the match against Turkey in 2012, is hoping to replicate his club form for his country if Van Gaal gives him the nod.
The former FC Twente midfielder was voted as Norwich's player of the month for September by the Barclays Premier League side's supporters.
He said of his return to the national team: "It took a long time before I got an invitation, but I'm very happy. This is what you hope for as a player. Interestingly, Turkey are one of the opponents again, but I hope this time I don't get injured."
He added on www.vi.nl: "I'm really enjoying myself in England. I hope I can show that form with the Dutch national team."
Paris St Germain right-back Gregory van der Wiel has also pulled out of the Holland squad after being forced out of training on Monday with a knee injury.
Augsburg defender Paul Verhaegh, 30, has been drafted in as his replacement and could be in line to make his second appearance for his country.
