IN Amsterdam provides a one-stop-shop service for international talent: companies and their highly skilled migrant employees, scientific researchers, international entrepreneurs and international graduates. IN Amsterddam helps with residence and work permits (including the startup visa), registration with the municipality, the 30% tax ruling and many other official matters.
Via IN Amsterdam procedure employers are allowed to initiate the registration for a residence permit prior to their new employee’s arrival in the country. This allows highly skilled migrants (and their family members) to complete several important formalities in a single visit to IN Amsterdam.
Expats are able, in one appointment, to collect their residence permit and simultaneously complete the necessary registration with their municipality. As a result, they will also receive their citizen service number (BSN), allowing them to open a Dutch bank account, amongst other things. An early IND approval (in the form of a sticker) is available for companies who would like their expat employees to start working within two weeks after initiating the application with the IND. Applications for the 30% ruling can also be made via IN Amsterdam.
IN Amsterdam also provides services for EU citizens. EU citizens working for a company which has the official sponsor status with the IND can visit IN Amsterdam for their municipal registration.
IN Amsterdam’s Partnership programme also connects expats with local expat-related service providers in the Amsterdam Area. A full list of the IN Amsterdam’s trusted partners can be found on the website www.iamsterdam.com.
The Expatcenter’s knowledgeable team is ready and able to answer questions, provide information and offer assistance to expats across a wide range of topics.
