The regulation to pass the integration exam is easened for foreign entrepreneurs. Foreigners holding a residence permit to work as an entrepreneur are exempted from the mandatory exam Orientation on the Dutch Labour Market (ONA). Reason for this exemption is that in order to qualify for a residence permit to work as an foreign entrepreneur, this group of foreigners is already assessed on active entrepreneurial skills. This exemption works retro-actively as of 13 March 2020. The exemption must be applied for at DUO.
