The program of the different ministries of the Dutch government, the Key Employee Permit, allows Dutch startups to get international talent to the Netherlands to work for your startup. As a first European country, the Netherlands offers a visa that is based on Employee participation. Instead of salary requirements, it offers the chance for you and your hire to show that you are both willing to invest in a future together. The application to hire a Key Employee through this permit is evaluated based on the company future potential and not just on past results. Whether you found a right person abroad or you want to relocate your key team to The Netherlands, it enables you to unlock the talent potential of the world.
