HIGHLY SKILLED MIGRANT RESIDENCE PERMIT
When you have found a job and a residence permit is needed in order for you to be in the Netherlands, the highly skilled migrants permit is generally the best option. First your employer needs to gain a status with the IND as host organisation for highly skilled migrants. But once that is arranged, your employer can apply a residence permit for you, as long as you belong to one of the subcategories.
One is eligible for a highly skilled migrant residence permit if:
- One is 30 or over and earns over four thousand euros a month gross. For 2018 this rate is set to €4404.
- One is under 30 years and earns €3,229 gross per month.
More information on the highly skilled migrant permit can be found on the IND website.
