Country Desk Turkey: Only English and Dutch spoken at the moment.

The Netherlands has been an attractive location for international companies and entrepreneurs for many years. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the transition of entrepreneurs and highly skilled migrants coming from Turkey to the Netherlands, and there is also an increase in Turkish companies incorporating a legal entity in the Netherlands.

According to recent data, there has been an eight hundred percent (800%) increase in the number of applicants for work permits in the category of "highly skilled foreigners". Kroes Immigration Lawyers assists companies and entrepreneurs in obtaining visa, residence and work permits in the Netherlands.

There are no surprises later, as we carry out our work according to a pre-agreed fixed schedule.

Work and residence permit

Our Turkey Desk assists in obtaining the required residence and work permits for companies and employees and their families coming from Turkey. We can summarize the most applied types of work and residence permits as follows:

  • Highly skilled migrant (Bilge göçmen)
  • EU Blue Card (AB Mavi Kart)
  • Intra Company Transfer (Şirket İçi Transfer)

Work permits can be issued by the IND within two weeks. Together with you, we examine the most suitable option for your company, the employee and the employee's family.

Entrepreneurs and freelancers

Our Turkey Desk also provides guidance to entrepreneurs who want to establish a company in the Netherlands. Since the Immigration and Naturalisation service requests very detailed documentation in this area, we assist you every step of the way in this process.

Setting up your company's Dutch legal entity or branch, bank accounts, and residence
