Work permits for IT specialists

Indian IT specialists do not require a work permit in order to install and implement software for a Dutch customer in the Netherlands.

Needless to say this is not only the case for Indian IT specialists. Every foreign enterprise can temporarily bring in IT specialists to perform this activity. No work permit
required for IT specialists.
We arrange the needful.
A requisite is that the software involved has been developed by this company sending its IT specialists to the Netherlands to install or implement it. Furthermore, the installation process needs to be completed within 12 contiguous weeks.

Kroes Advocaten can assess if you comply with the requirements of the Dutch authorities.

In order to enter the Netherlands IT specialists from a country requiring a visa to enter the Netherlands will need to travel with said visa. A visa can easily be applied for, together with a work permit exemption (TWV-vrijstelling), with the Dutch authorities in the country of origin. As a result of this procedure it is possible to plan for software installation processes.
