Especially for employers who require partial support on relocating a highly skilled migrant to the Netherlands, the Expat Center Food Valley offers individual services for foreign professionals.
For a fixed fee, we arrange the residence permit pick-up, biometric data collection or registration with the municipality. We can also help your new employee to open a bank account.
Is your new employee coming to the Netherlands without a visa? In that case, the IND will need biometric data in order to issue a residence permit. Upon arrival in the Netherlands, we will schedule an appointment at our IND in-house desk to collect this information and apply for the residence permit.
Which biometric data does IND collect for the residence permit?
- A fingerprint scan.
- A passport photo. The photo will be made at our IND desk. The foreign professional’s signature.
The residence permit can be picked up at our IND in-house desk within 1 or 2 weeks after the biometrics appointment. Cost: € 60,-
Register with the municipality
Every resident of the Netherlands must have a BSN (social security number). Your new employee needs this number when for example opening a bank account and taking out insurances. The BSN number is provided upon registration with the municipality in the Personal Records Database (BRP).
Which conditions apply to the registration, depends on the length of stay and the country of origin.
Once the residence permit has been issued, your new employees will register themselves with the municipality of Wageningen. They will immediately receive their BSN. Cost: € 60,-
Open a bank account
Opening a bank account is only possible if your new employee has a BSN number, an employer's statement or employment contract, and - if it concerns a highly skilled migrant from outside the EU - a residence permit.
How does it work?
- The expat decides at which bank he / she wants to open a bank account.
- We check whether or not the expat has the required documents, permits and/or declarations.
- We submit the request for a new bank account online.
Cost: € 60,-
