Looking to hire cross-border talent? We’re here to help! Learn about our payroll and international employer of record (EOR) services for businesses hiring employees from within Europe and beyond.
Need support navigating Dutch employment regulations? With our professional employer organisation (PEO) services, we help international companies in many areas of employment administration.
To start our onboarding process we will send you a checklist. The checklist contains a list of documents and questions we require to draft up the contracts. Once you send us the filled out checklist and the requested documents, we will start drafting the contracts.
The contracts are drafted based on the information within the checklist. We take a maximum of 5 working days to draft up the contracts. Once finished, we will send them for your feedback. After you give your approval, we will send the contracts to be signed by you and your employee.
After we receive the signed contracts, we can start the application procedure for a work and residency permit. We send the fully signed contracts to your immigration lawyer, who will then send out the application to the Dutch Immigration Office (IND). It usually takes the IND 2 to 3 weeks to make their decision.
As the employee will live and work in the Netherlands for a period longer than 90 days, they need to have a visa prior to arriving in the Netherlands. After the IND has approved the application, your employee can collect their visa at the Dutch embassy in their country of residence. After your Employee collects their visa, they can travel to the Netherlands. Not everyone needs a visa to travel to the Netherlands. Please check this page link to check whether your employee requires a visa.
The employee will need to make an appointment to collect their permit at an IND office. If the permit cannot be collected within 4 months, the employee must collect a sticker in the meantime. This sticker will allow the employee to continue working in the Netherlands.
After the arrival of the employee in the Netherlands, the employee must make an appointment to register at the municipality where they live. During this appointment the employee will receive their BSN which is the Dutch social security number. Also, the employee must have a Dutch health insurance within 4 months of their arrival in the Netherlands.
Our PEO, EOR and custom solutions and services come with no hidden costs or fees.
