After the implementation of the Single Permit Directive the Immigration Service (IND) prescribed that for intra company transferees the Single Permit (GVVA) had to be applied for. This is not according the intention of the legislator. This category was explicitly excluded. Kroes Advocaten pointed the IND to this wrongful implementation. As of 1 July the IND announced that it will amend its policy rules. Employers of intra company transferees must apply for the work permit at the Labor Office and a separate residence permit at the IND. Work permits for intra company transferees are issued within a couple of weeks. This separate work permit procedure therefore has speed as the advantage for multinational companies transferring its employees.
