A good start
In Departure, we take care of all formalities with the IND, the Dutch embassy in the country of origin and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs abroad. This is a very time-consuming and complicated job. An application requires the submission of many forms and documents. If an application is incomplete, or if not all required documents have been submitted, the application is rejected, and as a consequence the process must be started again. In short: please leave this time-consuming process to our specialists, so that success is guaranteed. This allows you to start working with your new colleague as soon as possible.
A provisional residence permit (in Dutch abbreviated as MVV) and a residence permit must be applied for in order to have a highly skilled migrant work in the Netherlands. In addition to these permits, you must also have been registered as a recognised sponsor with the IND. The average term of the application for becoming a recognised sponsor amounts to three months. The application term for the permits jointly also amounts to three months.
To be able to employ a highly skilled migrant, you must be registered as a recognised sponsor with the IND. The average application process takes three months or more. However, we also understand that you would like to onboard your new colleague as soon as possible, so that they can be of value to your company.
That is why we are offering the option of employing the expat through payrolling. This means that you do not run any risk in terms of employership, and that they can start work at your company straight away. You may subsequently choose to either maintain the payrolling structure or to employ the expat yourself immediately after the application period for becoming a recognised sponsor.
An additional benefit of payrolling is that the complete payroll records are taken care of.
