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. 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.

Visa

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.

Jelle was a fantastic partner and advisor throughout the process of applying for nearly 20 work permits for our staff. He was always very transparent about the work that needed to be completed for the best results and was very upfront about the costs of that work. We never felt manipulated or neglected, and both Jelle and his team were very pleasant to work with. We would highly recommend hiring Jelle and his team for any US companies hoping to obtain permits for working in the Netherlands.”

I would like to thank Kroes Advocaten  for the excellent job that all of you have done in managing these assignments. It was professionally handled, expertly managed, with timely updates and at no point did it seem that you are not in control. “

Teresa Vanderlaan, Global Humans Resources Manager 

Many times we are all rushing to get work completed and forget the simple words of “thank you”. I wanted to stop today and tell you I truly appreciate how responsive you and your team are, how you communicate and explain the world of immigration to myself and colleagues, and your availability to myself and anyone on my team. While I am half Dutch, I have heard generalizations made, that the Dutch are very slow in responding and working. That has not been the case with you and you have no idea how helpful it has been for me to work with you. So “thank you”. You help me make my job easier.
