Not everyone needs a separate Dutch work permit to legally work in the Netherlands – find out if you need a Dutch work permit for your situation. 

If you want to work in the Netherlands, your residency status and nationality will dictate if you need a Dutch work permit. Dutch work and residence authorisation are closely linked, so your reason for moving to the Netherlands – for example, as a highly skilled worker, employee, student or family member – will determine what kind of authorisation you need to legally work in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands has one of the most internationally focused, highly educated, motivated and multilingual workforces in the world, and the demand for highly skilled workers remains high. There are incentives for international employees such as a tax benefit scheme (30 percent tax ruling) and a fast-track highly skilled migrants programme. There are multiple Dutch permits for obtaining authorisation to legally work and live in the Netherlands, for example, the highly skilled migrant permit, intra-company transfer permit, orientation year permit for foreign graduates or the general work permit.
