About IN Amsterdam

All companies based in the municipalities of Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Almere, Diemen, Haarlem, Hilversum, Haarlemmermeer and Velsen who are official sponsors or recognised partners of the Netherlands' Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) can make use of IN Amsterdam’s streamlined procedures.

Help for companies

Via the IN Amsterdam procedure, employers can initiate the registration for a residence permit prior to their new employee’s arrival in the country. This allows highly skilled migrants (and their family members) to complete several important formalities in a single visit to the IN Amsterdam office after arrival. IN Amsterdam also provides other services such as applications for the 30% ruling and assists international newcomers directly.

For more detailed information on IN Amsterdam services see: IN Amsterdam services for employers and check how to apply for a highly skilled migrant visa.

Help for internationals

Expats living in Amsterdam can visit IN Amsterdam for expert advice, information and resources in addition to the wealth of information available throughout the Living section of this website.

IN Amsterdam hosts events, too, including regular seminars led by experts, covering topics such as employment, taxes and education. There is information available on renting and owning property, as well as healthcare, schooling, housing, finding work and more. IN Amsterdam is also committed to helping protect international residents against workplace discrimination and exploitation.
