New online service proves successful with IND's business customers
The number of approved businesses using IND’s online applications service to complete applications is soaring after it was launched just last year. Since 2016, companies officially registered as 'sponsors' have been able to submit residence permit applications online. A spokesman for IND said they expect more customers to choose to make applications online in the future as the service expands to incorporate even more options. So far, three quarters of all applications for scientific staff are being submitted online, and more than half the number of applications for highly skilled migrants are made through the IND's Business Portal.
