If you want to come and work in the Netherlands, you probably have many questions. How do you do get a visa? Do you have to do the civic integration examination? Are you allowed to work in the Netherlands? And what is it like to live in the Netherlands?
The website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs answers many of these questions. You can also find helpful information on the websites of other organisations.
The website Werk.nl, for instance, provides information to residents of the European Union and the European Economic Area about job applications, contracts and the recognition of foreign qualifications.
Use the Residence Wizard of the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) to find out what requirements you have to meet and what documents you need if you want to work in the Netherlands.
Are you a European citizen already working in the Netherlands or considering working in the Netherlands? If so, the brochure “Information for European workers in the Netherlands” by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment will help you. It contains basic information about work, social security, accommodation, medical expenses, education and learning Dutch. The brochure also explains where you can find further information. Download it in pdf from the link on the right.
