Migration signifies: crossing the border, leaving the beaten path behind. This demands courage. Every migrant has a unique story to tell. That is our inspiration.
Students from Argentina, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea can easily obtain a residence permit for the Netherlands which allows them to also work.
For Argentinians, Canadians and South Korean the Working Holiday Program applies; for Australians and New Zealanders a similar program is called the Working Holiday Scheme.
In order to qualify for either program candidates must not be older than 31 years of age and be able to prove that they have sufficient means to buy a return ticket to their country of origin. They are not allowed to take out social benefits in the Netherlands. Foreigners holding a WHP / WHS permit are only allowed to do 'incidental work': That is work that is required to earn sufficient means to be able to pay for the costs of living in the Netherlands.
The residence permit issued is valid for no longer than one year, and can not be renewed
Foreigners holding a Working Holiday Program or Working Holiday Scheme permit that wishes to remain in the Netherlands following the expiry of their residence permit, may apply for another, indicating the purpose thereof. Candidates then have to be able to meet the requirements of the residence visit being applied for.
