Immigration services

The meaning of the term highly skilled migrant is defined by law as someone who comes to work in the Netherlands from outside the European Union (including Switzerland). This concerns a highly educated person who comes to work in the Netherlands as a highly skilled migrant because of his or her specialist knowledge. Specific requirements, conditions and salary criteria apply to employing a highly skilled migrant. The main aim of the knowledge migrant scheme is to make it more attractive for students and highly educated knowledge migrants to work in the Netherlands. Their knowledge and talent can boost the Dutch economy, prosperity and education.

The highly skilled migrant scheme set up by the Netherlands makes it possible for you as an employer to hire highly skilled migrants quickly and easily (under certain conditions). Simply put, this regulation relaxes the admission requirements for highly skilled migrants.

How our Immigration service works

Com.pas can fully support you in the process of bringing employees from outside the European Union to the Netherlands, but we can also be the referent for highly skilled migrants who are already in the Netherlands.

You immediately benefit from our up-to-date expertise and take the complex and time-consuming process completely off your hands. So that the application for a residence permit based on the highly skilled migrant scheme runs smoothly

In addition to our advisory role, we also collect the necessary data from the highly skilled migrant and check whether they meet the requirements. This means that the highly skilled migrant(s) you have recruited can start work quickly and without any worries.

By means of our payroll service, we take over the immigration procedure completely from you. We arrange the permit application with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (‘IND’) and are the legal employer here. We then make the highly skilled migrant available exclusively to you as the hirer.

The Immigration service of Com.pas

  • Taking the immigration procedure and permit application for highly skilled migrants out of your hands
  • Taking care of the immigration and processing of the permit application(s) for family members of the highly skilled migrant (if applicable)
  • Knowledge partner for all relevant IND matters and arranging agreements with the IND
  • Supporting the highly skilled migrant in obtaining a citizen service number
  • Supporting the highly skilled migrant in opening a bank account.
  • Applying for the 30% ruling (if applicable)

The 30% ruling

Employees from abroad who temporarily stay and work in the Netherlands incur extra costs for accommodation, among other things. These are the so-called extraterritorial costs. With the 30% ruling, these employees are financially compensated by deducting a maximum of 30% of the fiscal annual wage and then paying it net (i.e. untaxed). In order to make use of the 30% ruling, the employer and the employee must submit a request to the Tax and Customs Administration. The Tax and Customs Administration then checks whether the following conditions are met:
  • The employee was recruited outside the Netherlands and he or she has lived more than 150 km from the Dutch border for more than 16 of the total 24 months prior to working in the Netherlands
  • The employee is registered in the Netherlands and employed by the employer;
  • The employee adds something to the Dutch economy (this is almost always the case for highly skilled migrants)
  • The employee must meet the applicable annual salary criterion
