Werkvergunning (GVVA of TWV) aanvragen

Een werkgever mag een vreemdeling van buiten de Europese Unie, én Kroaten, pas arbeid laten verrichten indien hij voor deze vreemdeling beschikt over een werkvergunning. Dit kan een GVVA (Gecombineerde Vergunning voor Verblijf en Arbeid) of TWV (Tewerkstellingsvergunning) zijn.

GVVA of TWV aanvragen Nederland

De GVVA of TWV moet worden aangevraagd door de werkgever.

  • Een GVVA wordt aangevraagd als de werkzaamheden langer dan 90 dagen duren. Anders kan een tewerkstellingsvergunning (TWV) worden aangevraagd.
  • De GVVA wordt aangevraagd bij de IND; een TWV bij het UWV Werkbedrijf.
  • Voor kennismigranten is geen GVVA of TWV vereist.

 

Een GVVA of TWV wordt pas verleend nadat is gebleken dat de werkgever geen geschikte kandidaten heeft gevonden in Nederland en in de andere EU lidstaten. Daarnaast moet de vacature gedurende 5 weken zonder resultaat bij het UWV Werkbedrijf hebben uitgestaan.

De werkgever dient minimaal 5 weken actief te hebben gezocht naar geschikte kandidaten. Bij vacatures die moeilijk zijn te vervullen kan dit zelfs 3 maanden zijn. Dit is de zogenaamde toets aan het prioriteitgenietend aanbod.

Slechts indien geen geschikte prioriteitgenietende kandidaat is gevonden, kan de werkgever een GVVA of TWV aanvragen.

Beoordeling aanvraag

De aanvraag wordt ingediend bij de IND. De IND stuurt deze aanvraag door naar het UWV Werkbedrijf. Het UWV Werkbedrijf beoordeelt of voldoende inspanningen zijn verricht om prioriteitgenietende kandidaten te vinden. Daarnaast wordt beoordeeld of het salaris van de buitenlandse werknemer marktconform is, en of de huisvesting goed is geregeld.

Het UWV Werkbedrijf geeft de IND een arbeidsmarktadvies. Als dit positief is, zal de IND de aanvraag inwilligen.

Een succesvolle aanvraag vergt een goede voorbereiding.

Tiange Gao, HR Operations Western Europe

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to Kroes Advocaten for the outstanding service that is provided in the work permit and residence applications, specifically the ICT visa process. Our dedicated lawyer Mr. Sander Groen, whose professionalism and attention to detail makes the entire experience seamless and stress-free. Their ability to tackle extremely difficult cases with a positive outcome reflects the high standards of excellence at Kroes Advocaten.”

Marek Macek, Consulting Director

“We have not had a single instance where Kroes Advocaten did not deliver what was promised to us. They are typically very specific about the process, costs and timelines. This is a great value-add to us, as it simply takes away another risk item and allows us to successfully live up to our commitments to our customers.”

Vera Hoffmann, Global Mobility Manager

"They are great to work with, responsiveness, knowledgeable and great communication to our foreigners. "

Parag Deshpande, Sr. Director

“All expectations met. They also helped set a process for audit from IND in Netherlands for us which is really handy. They maintain a copy of each case in electronic and physical format at their office. Also reminders on expiring visas and application to renew the same in time is handy.”

Marios Stangonis, Legal Department

“The team of KROES Advocaten leaves us always satisfied with the quality of the services they provide us with. They know very well the technicalities of Dutch immigration law and legal procedures and are able to give us precise direction within short deadlines. We feel confident that every issue we assign them is under control.”

Martijn Coeveld, Director of Operations

“We consider Kroes Advocaten as one of our key partners; they play an essential role in recruiting new talent for TBA. Kroes Advocaten provide clarity early-on, get to action promptly and are responsive throughout the entire visa application process.”

Anurag Nautiyal, Sales Director & Head – Continental Europe

“I would like to thank Kroes Advocaten  for the excellent job that all of you have done in managing these assignments. It was professionally handled, expertly managed, with timely updates and at no point did it seem that you are not in control. “

Nynke Doorenbos, Executive Vice President, HR, Legal and Operations

"We have been working with Kroes Advocaten for several years mainly in relation to Visa applications for expats. We value their efficiency, responsiveness and professionalism. Based on our experience in working with them, we have complete faith in their capabilities of getting the job done! On behalf of our organisation I take this opportunity to thank Sander Groen, Sarah Lindeboom and the rest of the team for always delivering excellence and organizing valuable seminars and events for knowledge sharing. Very much appreciated!"

Kailas Ugale, Manager – Visa & Immigration

“Kroes Advocaten  is a leader in the field of Dutch Immigration law, work permit and process and consistently provides us with outstanding value. Their service remains extremely client oriented, user friendly and highly efficient. Their fees are extremely competitive yet they offer solid legal strategic advice with consistently high service and results.”

Venera Khairullina, Visa Strategy & Compliance Group

"We  have been working with Kroes Advocaten for all our visa applications in Netherlands. They have been very efficient, responsive, and have a high-skilled team of immigration specialists. They also very good in finding smart solutions that are compliant with the local laws and regulations and they timely warn us about any changes in the local law. We are generally very pleased with their assistance."

Joe White, Regional Manager

"Kroes Advocaten have assisted us with the relocation of many staff in recent years. Their work has been exemplary - we've never had any issues, everything is completed on time and for a reasonable price. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs to transfer staff from overseas to The Netherlands."

Henk Offermans, Finance & HR Manager

Kroes Advocaten have assisted us a few times now with expats coming from Japan and we can testify that they have a very straightforward approach. What really stands out is their way of communication. They are clear on every step, inform us immediately when there is new information and also help the expats, who are unfamiliar with the Netherlands, by showing them what to do in a clear way when their input is required. Our expats are very positive about the service delivered.

Teresa Vanderlaan, Global Humans Resources Manager 

Many times we are all rushing to get work completed and forget the simple words of “thank you”.  I wanted to stop today and tell you I truly appreciate how responsive you and your team are, how you communicate and explain the world of immigration to myself and colleagues, and your availability to myself and anyone on my team.  While I am half Dutch, I have heard generalizations made, that the Dutch are very slow in responding and working.  That has not been the case with you and you have no idea how helpful it has been for me to work with you.  So “thank you”.  You help me make my job easier. 

Barak Bar-Hen, CEO Elad Europe

"The Elad Europe group has started working with Mr. Sander Groen since 2007, and is using his good services for its employees. Mr. Groen has shown that he has vast knowledge, experience and good contacts within the authorities and always provided best results in minimum time."

Cristina Ruz , HR Director, Strategic HR Business Partner

"Sheryl Goldberg is one of the best Immigration professionals that I have worked with. She has a vast knowledge of the immigration system but her differentiator is the way she applies this to any business situation together with her direct and plain way to explain the solutions. In additional to this, Sheryl is great and positive person and we find her as an extension to our HR team. Thanks so much Sheryl for all your help!"

Amy Darling

“Jelle was a fantastic partner and advisor throughout the process of applying for nearly 20 work permits for our staff. He was always very transparent about the work that needed to be completed for the best results and was very upfront about the costs of that work. We never felt manipulated or neglected, and both Jelle and his team were very pleasant to work with. We would highly recommend hiring Jelle and his team for any US companies hoping to obtain permits for working in the Netherlands.”

Murat Alexandrovich Koedanetov, Directeur

Rony Barbi, Director of HR

"Fornova started working with Mr. Sander Groen on January 2016 and is using his excellent services for its employees. Mr. Groen has shown that he has vast knowledge, experience and always available to give us the professional services we needed.“
