About IN Amsterdam

IN Amsterdam offers a simplified process for registration, residence permits and BSN for international newcomers and companies looking to hire highly skilled migrants. Its services include a Partnership Programme, which connects international newcomers with local expat-related service providers in the Amsterdam Area.

Our services

IN Amsterdam provides a one-stop-shop service for international companies and their highly skilled migrant employees. 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.

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.
