Here are the key takeaways:

1. Get your Dutch visa!

  • EU Citizens don’t need a visa to work in the Netherlands
  • Graduates of Dutch universities can use the orientation permit to work or seek employment for up to a year
  • Highly-skilled migrants (this includes developers) qualify for an accelerated visa process. Check with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) for a list of companies sponsoring the visa.

2. Register with BSN for your Dutch residence permit

  • Expatcenter: if you are a highly skilled migrant worker go here for your BSN. Your employer will organize the appointment.
