Specific services

Welcome Center Food Valley offers specific services for foreign professionals hired by a Dutch employer.

Contracted by the employer, we arrange formalities such as arranging the appointment to collect residence permit card, biometric data collection and registration with the municipality for a fixed fee.

As an employer, you can also choose to have us arrange all procedures and formalities. Please contact us to discuss our packages for various procedures.

Biometric data required for a 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.

BSN pre-registration procedure municipality:

Pre-registration is required to issue a BSN number at the appointment. We can arrange this pre-registration to ensure an efficient process.

Appointment registration in municipality:

After pre-registration, the municipality official can issue the BSN number directly to the expat during this personal appointment.

We explain how the education system works, investigate what needs families have and which schools suit them. We also inform them about Dutch education laws and policies regarding non-Dutch speaking children and we can accompany them to visit schools. In this way we help find a school where the children enjoy going.
