Good news for knowledge migrants and other labor migrants! The Minister of Social Affairs has announced to take measures to shorten the waiting period for the exam section ‘Orientation on the Dutch labor market’ of the Civic Integration Exam. For candidates that are currently employed this is excellent news because the will get a full exemption of this section of the integration exam. For other candidates the final interview will be cancelled if the candidate can prove that they have spent at least 64 hours of education in this field. The candidate will need to substantiate this with a portfolio. These measure will come in to force as soon as possible. Click here for the letter of Minister Koolmees (only in Dutch).
