NETHERLANDS – Cross border workers no longer limited to 90 out of 180 days

Effective immediately, third country nationals resident in another member state (for example Belgium or Germany) who work in the Netherlands with a work permit but return to their country of residence at least once a week (so-called “cross border workers” or “frontier workers”) are no longer limited to 90 days stay in the Netherlands in any 180-day period.

The Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) has removed the reference to this limit from its website and confirmed to Newland Chase that cross border workers are indeed exempt from the 90/180 days limit.

New Data in Immiguru: NETHERLANDS – Work Permit Exemption (International Commercial Trade Regulations program)

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve added the Work Permit Exemption (International Commercial Trade Regulations program) process for the Netherlands to Immiguru.

The Dutch International Commercial Trade Regulations (ICTR) program has recently come into force, replacing the narrower Knowledge-Based Industry Pilot Program which ran as a test from July 2013 to June 2017. Under this new work permit waiver program, Dutch companies can bring non-EU/EEA/Swiss foreign nationals to the Netherlands to perform activities as part of a pre-approved project related to the delivery of goods and services for a period of up to three years. Work permits are not required but a notification should be made to the Dutch Labour Authorities and a residence permit applied for stays of over 90 days.

Many thanks to our partner in the Netherlands, Expat Management Group for their help with this!

New Data in Immiguru: Intra-Company Transfer Permit (EU Directive 2014/66) for Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Bulgaria and Romania

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve added the new Intra-Company Transfer Permit (EU Directive 2014/66) processes for Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Bulgaria and Romania to Immiguru.

European Union flag vintageThe EU ICT Permit, established by the ICT Directive 2014/66/EU, is intended to be a consistent European Union-wide temporary work and residence permit allowing third-country nationals in certain positions to be assigned from a company outside the EU to a company within the EU in the same group, and to easily move and work within the EU.  The United Kingdom, Denmark and Ireland have opted out of this directive.

Despite a November 2016 deadline to transpose the ICT Directive into national law, by September 2017 several EU Member States had not yet fully implemented the directive.  Austria is expected to implement the Directive by 1 October 2017.

Many thanks to all our partners who have helped us with this!
