Working Holiday Program

For which foreigners?

Foreigners from Argentina,Β  Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan, Uruguay, South Korea and Taiwan can easily obtain a residence permit for the Netherlands. It is a residence permit to get acquainted with Dutch culture and society. This permit allows this group of foreigners also work under some restricted conditions.

For Argentinians, Canadians, citizens of Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan the Working Holiday Program applies. For Australians and New Zealanders a similar program is called the Working Holiday Scheme.

Conditions

To be eligible for this residence permit, the foreign national must not be older than 31 years. Furthermore, the foreign national must demonstrate that he has sufficient means of subsistence to be able to buy an airline ticket to the country of origin.

Work without work permit

Foreigners holding a WHP / WHS permit are only allowed to do 'incidental work'. Incidental means:

  • In any case not working on a fulltime employment contract with a duration of one year. A shorter period, or part time is allowed.

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.
