Working Holiday Program

For which foreigners?

Foreigners from Argentina,  Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan, Uruguay, South Korea and Taiwan can easily obtain a residence permit for the Netherlands. This permit allows them to 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.

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.
